    Will nextview work in Brussels the following configuration?

    Set Top Box: Motorola DVI1000 (manual says teletext feature is not used)

    The channel guide does not show any scheduling, and when it's browsing
    a channgel, "no information available" is displayed.

    I'm not sure if teletext is being sent.  If an STB does not support
    teletext, is it possible the teletext or VBI is still passed passed
    through to the capture card?  Or does nextview rely on the STB to
    extract teletext from the VBI?

    Documentation is inconsistent with regards to Belgium.  The front page
    mentions it working in Belgium, then the /about/ page
    (http://nxtvepg.sourceforge.net/intro.html) says:

      "It enables you to receive and browse free TV programme listings for
      all of the major networks in Germany, Austria, France and
      Switzerland."

    The provider table (http://nxtvepg.sourceforge.net/provnets.html)

    The footnotes give different dates of service than notes in the table.

    Is anyone in Belgium successfully using nextview?
