That explains a lot of problems with invalid MPEG-streams (and why
MPlayer swallows with VDR-recordings).
Because of aerial circumstances (rain, snow, clouds, electricity,
overlieing waves of other transmitters, ...) you NEVER receive 100% of a
transmission (even harddisks use CRC for checking the data coming from
the IDE-interface or read from disk for bit-errors - on a 45 cm
copper-line or on 5 cm wire in the disk ...).
CRCs are a basic need for digital, aerial transmissions to keep the
bitstream valid. All streams will be corrupt without CRC (full-featured
cards do CRC-checking when filtering).
So this should be added as fast as possible (before 1.2.0 to have a
really stable system). This also would increase reception in case of bad
