Good way to do is set pid 0, analyse the PAT, grab the PMT PID of the 
service you're interested in, add it to the demux, then parse the PMT, 
grabe the ES PIDs you're interested in, and add it to the demux.

With this you'll be able tou watch the video and hear the audio. If you 
need more tables you should read iso-13818-1, and en 300 438
