When you have received the last section, you don't know if you really
received all sections. Perhaps the section with the last sectionnumber
is the one you received first. So I think you have to check if really
all section were received.

Furthermore I think it is not enough to wait only for sdt data. It would
be better if you also wait for pmt data (so that the scanned channels
have also VPid, APid, ...). Have a look at pat.c.
