What channel?  I also thought there was AFD data in at least some of
the ausy channels, but I found a unix test tool dvbsnoop
(http://dvbsnoop.sourceforge.net/) which apprantly can tell me if
there is AFD data in a stream.  I found none in the particular channel
which was giving visual artifacts (10) which convonced me I was
barking up the wrong tree...  I ended up writing a filter to block the
artifacts in xine (still testing.., it's half way working).

Did the dxr3 patches work as expected?  I'd love for AFD to be there..
