VDR 1.7.2 can't record h.264 streams yet.
AFAIK the existing h.264 patch makes the existing PES recording
format handle h.264, but that's not the way VDR will go. It will
switch completely to recording plain TS, and *then* will also handle
h.264.

In live Transfer Mode the TS is already sent to the output device,
so if a h.264 capable device handles TS, it should already be able
to show live h.264 video (haven't tested that yet, though).
