    • Mandatory pids are :
      • PAT (0): Program Association Table
      • NIT (16) : Network Information Table : It is intended to provide information about the physical network.
      • SDT (17) : Service Description Table : the SDT contains data describing the services in the system e.g. names of services, the service provider, etc.
      • EIT (18) : Event Information Table : the EIT contains data concerning events or programmes such as event name, start time, duration, etc.
      • TDT (20): Time and Date Table : the TDT gives information relating to the present time and date.This information is given in a separate table due to the frequent updating of this information.
  • mumudvb automatically suscribe to all multicast groups (IGMP membership request) in order to avoid some switches to broadcast all channels.
