Thanks for the explanation.
By the way, the trouble with digital TV broadcasts in the Netherlands is
that most of the channels are not free-to-air. You need a receiver with
a smartcard decoder. The only receivers I know about have only RGB and
composite output. Last time I checked there didn't seem to be a better
option than to feed the composite signal to a a pvr device like pvrusb2.
It's absurd to go from the over-the-air MPEG-2 to composite video and
then back to MPEG-2, but at least it wasn't my idea. :)
