10. The list of all active PIDs
The structure of the trans-
port stream includes a listing
of all the PIDs that are dis-
played in the form of a tree
diagram. In this way you
can easily see which PIDs
belong to what channels and
how the datastream is con-
The Details column reveals
details of each PID marked
in the overview column and
graphically displays all of the
active PIDs in the transport
stream. The visual display of
the available content takes
the form of thumbnails for
each individual TV channel
and provides a quick over-
view of all the transmitted
Double-clicking on one of
the thumbnails is all that’s
needed for TSReader to
start playing back the se-
lected channel. This is where
the freely downloadable
VLC player goes into action
(download from
lan.org). It can be controlled
directly through TSReader.
It doesn’t matter if it’s an SD
or HD broadcaster in MPEG2
or whether you’re dealing
with the H.264/MPEG4 stan-
dard. And as long as we’re
talking about standards, the
TSReader supports DVB,
In our tests with a variety
of transport streams in DVB
(SD and HD), the analysis
and processing of these sig-
nals functioned without any
problems. The demand on
the processor remains rela-
tively low allowing you to
easily use the PC for other
work. We liked the ability
to set up a variety of basic

dow then switches over to

along with other bits of in-
formation is visible, just to
the right can be seen a col-
umn of detailed information
and all the way to the right
of the screen is the visual
display of what’s contained
in the transport stream.
