Having multiple services with different SIDs and same PMT-PIDs is not a
problem at all.

The PMT has the sid (or "program number") in their "table id extension"
field, so you should filter for it (in any case). Then you get the
correct PMT. It's even allowed in the standard, i think (though i have
no quote to proove it at the moment)
