Hello Carl Eugen

I have read the teletext.dat file byte by byte and the data doesn't make
sense. It should read similar to an srt file.

import binascii

with open('teletext.dat', 'rb') as f:
        while byte:
#               print byte
                #print blah
                print text

prints out mostly FF FF etc... nothing that can be derived into an English
Sentence. Any thoughts?
