Maybe some broadcasters aren't even aware that they are not
adhering to the DVB standard. So let's all call them and tell
them about it. The more people call and complain, the better
the chances things get fixed (at least that's what I'd hope for ;-).
Building workarounds into receivers is certainly not the right
way to go (even though it is, of course, a quick fix and may be
sufficient for some users).
