VDR doesn't do anything with or about PTS, since it simply writes the
data as delivered from the DVB card to disk (with some re-packing).
That data stream is supposed to be playable just as it is, since that's
what the DVB card would have played in live mode, too.
However, if somebody can come up with some reasonable things to do with the
PTS, let's see it.
