A channel named "Service 1096" is showing up on my recent scans - encrypted with videoguard. according to Satboy on it was "Near Video On-Demand" back in 2011, not sure what it could be now. all i can tell is that its DVB-S and 576i.

Afraid that SID has been around for over 6 years.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat APAC as a Technology Evangelist and Portfolio Architect. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.
