The DVB receiver standards document is available at this URL:


It is a "voluntary" standard in that if you do not wish to follow it's
requirements you may build a receiver however you please but you can't label
it as being a DVB receiver.
Note that the standard is very specific about front-end requirements.

In comparison, the ATSC Recommend Practice (A74) is simply a guideline. You
may incorporate any, all, or none of its recommendations and still label the
receiver "ATSC". However, it may or may not work!

You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways:

- Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at 

- By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word 
unsubscribe in the subject line.
