ATSC TS Reader

Anyone using TS Reader? http://www.coolstf.com/tsreader/

I have found very good results with a Pinnacle 800e thumb drive sized ATSC tuner and the free lite version of this software.

Now, this does not replace my DekTec / Sencore portable stream scope by any means BUT is a cheap way to see the "guts" of an ATSC MPEG stream without leaving the really expensive stuff at a site.

I am considering the PRO version as it can do 608/708 captions. Just wanted to see if anyone else went this route?

Never gone with the PRO version, because I don't like having to spend so much money on an annual "license" for the software. I'd rather just buy the software outright. (Why I don't subscribe to Google Earth Pro). The unlicensed version still gets you a lot of good information.

Agreed. I make regular use of the free version.

Slight derail on this. But apparently Google Earth Pro is now free. I have some strange issues with it, however, and unless I need it, I'll stick to the non pro.
