Yes this is correct. SBS2 is SBS World Digital News.

I've also been trying to work out where the SBS 2 guide data went.

SBS World News has always been there as well and is different programming to SBS 2.

So what realy happened to SBS 2 data?

SBS is only broadcasting SBS1, SBS2 and SBSHD.   SBS2 became SBS World News (or something like that) and if you rescan your STB would probably be named accordingly.  There is certainly not any more stuff they broadcast, the LCNs would be redirecting the PIDs to one of the main, news or "fako HD" channels.

I have rescanned several times today and I still get:

3 SBS
30 SBS HD
31 SBS 2
33 SBS World News Digital

SBS HD seems to mirror SBS content but SBS 2 has different content at times to SBS and SBS World News is always unique.

Please explain?

I'm in Brisbane if that makes any difference.

The following info is copied from SBS's site - http://www20.sbs.com.au/transmissions/#channelnames

Quote
Digital Services

The SBS digital television service consists of one High Definition (HD) TV service, one Standard Definition (SD) TV service, the World News Channel (SD), an additional TV channel (SD), and two radio services.

Please see below for the list of logical channel numbers and their new names, effective 4 June, 2007.

3 SBS (previously SBS Digital 1)
 
31 SBS 2 (previously SBS Digital, the EPG or SBS Essential)

Screens multi-view sporting events known as "Sports Highlights", and other digital only projects, when available. At other times, the main SBS digital channel (SBS) is transmitted.
 
33 SBS News (previously SBS Digital 2)

also known as the World News Channel
 
30 SBS HD


Note: the change you are refering to happened back in June 2007. IceTV had program data available for SBS 2 until quite recently.
Why has this changed?

Interesting.   I have only ever seen the standard SBS stuff on SBS2 (which is why I mentioned the PIDS from that LCN coming from the main channel).
