Live launch coverage satellite information is from now on
presented on the Launches page a few days prior to a launch,
to easier now where you should look for launch transmissions!

=== PIDs - for MPEG-2 channels:
Please note that almost all the PIDs are now in the range of
0000-1FFF hex, which is the correct range.
Nokia's d-box normally shows them in the range from 4000 to
5FFF, but you can actually enter any even/odd number instead
of the 0(4) and 1(5).
