Hello Nico,

I've been trying this for days and just can't get it working:

That file obviously doesn't contain anything useful in there.  Can you
see what I'm doing wrong?

Also I don't have a problem capturing the full TS, I use VLC for that
and it works fine.  It's just that, because there is more than one
channel there, mencoder gets confused and falls over :-(  Any
suggestions on a workaround?  By the way, this all works on another
channel that we have that only has one channel in the TS.

Thanks,

Soyeb
