That doesn't contradict what I said at all.

E.g. the HDTV TS is packaged with ISI 0x23 and the SDTV has ISI 0x42.
The ISI for each TS is in the EN 300 468 S2 delivery desc.

When receiption conditions are good you can receive both TSs,
when they are bad you can only receive the SDTV TS (the HDTV
one will have too many errors).

In all cases the output of the demod is a single TS.
