I don't get it. Can't you leave the live pid filters as they are and
just add the pid's to be recorded as DMX_PES_OTHER filters? You the

sure, but you could add an additional filter for the same pid as
DMX_PES_OTHER, or can't you?
Nevertheless, i can see that doing transfer whenever possible is a good
thing when you want to build a live-stop function on top.
