This property takes no parameters.

Error Codes

If the property fails, an error is raised and Err.Number is set to a value other than zero.

Return Value

This property returns the network id as a long integer.


A Network ID is specific to DVB. It is a unique ID that specifies a particular broadcast provider (not a network type). Two broadcasters will have different network IDs even if they both provide DVB satellite broadcasts. Network IDs are allocated by the Joint Technical Committee (JTC) of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).  Applications that obtain tune requests from a database do not generally need to be concerned about this property.  Guide Store loaders will probably need to use it.  Applications that are specific to a broadcaster and don't use a database to access preconfigured tune requests may use this ID to locate the tuning space for the particular broadcaster they are interested in.
