I ran some tests. PCH can replay audio on multi stream. But it cannot switch
the stream. I am using PES format to stream a SD channel. So based on this I 
could remove the +1 autoparameter from URL.

I made some tests with HD channel:

TS-stream: PCH shows MPEG2TS, H.264 and AC3. H.264 dimension was unknown (resolution)
  - no sound
  - clock is not running (showing 0:00:00)
  - so in theory stream recognition works - but H.264 parsing does not (unknown rez)
  - I don't know the TS standard - how clock is transmitted. Or is it because TS tables? 
PES-stream: unknown stream, MPEG2 (false) and MPEG2 audio. Dimension unknown
  - but I hear sound
  - clock is running (counting seconds)

This is with previous PCH firmware. I need to upgrade firmware to latest and check if
there is any changes.
