Many types of consumer equipment will be connected to each other digitally in the home network, using e.g. the IEEE 1394 serial bus. Protocols and content data formates have already been fixed for the connection of digital video-conference cameras to the PC, and for DVC equipment for example digital camcorder and DV deck to a PC editing station. The transmission of complete MPEG-2 transport streams on a home network is mostly a waste of bandwidth, since not all included services need to be distributed. This invention provides a universally applicable solution for the distribution of partial MPEG-2 transport streams in the home network, e.g. the i.LINK/IEEE 1394 home network.
