Thanks. So it looks like dvbsrc does all the low-level parsing itself.
The trouble with that is I want to handle LCNs and other non-standard
SI, in particular Freesat and Freeview in the UK. Freesat uses
non-standard PIDs for the SDT and EIT schedule, and private descriptors
in the BAT for LCNs.  Freeview uses private descriptors in the NIT for

What would be the best way of accessing this info? Would dvbsrc send
"unknown sections" to the gst bus which I would be able to parse? And
can I get it to do this (adding extra pids etc) to a dvbsrc that's a
child of dvbbasebin?
