Sorry, no, I didn't save the working patch, because I felt it was
a trivial modification.  If I remember correctly, I replaced the
variable that is assigned "/dev/" + something with a character string
constant, the absolute pathname of the MPEG TS file.  There probably
was some wrapper around the open() call.  I don't remember changing
anything else, but I cannot tell that for sure.  I really should have
saved the patch that worked.

It was just a one-off thing to get a MPEG TS recording converted.
The second time (when I failed to patch vdr properly) I ended up
using mencoder and genindex.
