In analog television, teletext, subtitles and VPS (Video Program System for VCR control) have been much used supplementary services for many years. Apart from being able to create completely new, comparable services in DVB, standards were set up for enabling these familiar services to be incorporated compatibly in MPEG-2 data streams conforming to DVB. The approach is for the DVB receiver to insert these services back into the vertical blanking interval at the composite CVBS video output. This does not affect any parallel DVB data services such as EPG (Electronic Program Guide) or MHP (Multimedia Home Platform).
