The patch here for VDR (with separate "drop in" files freesat.t1 and freesat.t2) looks interesting, and would seem to allow VDR to read the compressed EPG in a transparent way. However, it has obviously not been merged to VDR in over 2 years, which would suggest that the VDR developers have rejected it for some reason.

I haven't pushed it upstream to Klaus, I think the preferable solution is to do it as a plugin - search for the eepg plugin which incorporates the parsing code.

P.S. Yes, I know that I am assuming that FreeSat and FreeviewHD are using the same proprietary Huffman tables. But I'm also under the impression that this assumption is not a bad one.

Yup, same tables, same PIDs - they're also broadcast on some of the DVB-T muxes as well.
