The cDevice::PlayTS() function I have introduced does "unpack" the
TS stream and sends the PES that is contained in the TS to the device
(otherwise the full featured DVB cards couldn't replay it, either).

The benefits of this method would be that it saves two extra ring buffers,
one extra thread, and quite a bit of data processing.
