One of my local PBS is transmitting the following subchannel:
Code:

    Program 6: 2-101 UpdatTV:
        Unknown (0x0b)


Anyone know what that is?

Heh. Well, I could record a sample and put it up... it's not video or anything else I can recognize. I was wondering if there was maybe another standard for something else that is being broadcast....

The stream type is DII_DDB -- i took a look at it, it's a mix of lines of text repeated over and over along with some binary data. I'm guessing its a news ticker type thing....

I've read that some stations have been sending a low-bit rate text news subchannel but it sounded like they were talking about text encoded into a low resolution MPEG stream. This sounds more like a teletext service which could be lots of fun to play with if other stations pick it up.

Stumbled across this thread when I had the same question. The answer appears to be a means of downloading software updates for television sets!
