Well, yes. The PMT_SCAN_TIMEOUT=1 wasn't expected to remove the gap,
only make sure the gap happens as soon as pids are changed (at the
program start, not after the start)

Now I could verify what happened with a familiar recording I have every

Apr  9 22:05:24 vdr vdr[7835]: timer 2 (1 2129-2211 'Uutisvuoto') set to
event La  09.04.2005 22:05-22:26 'Frasier'
Apr  9 22:05:25 vdr vdr[7843]: changing pids of channel 1 from
512+128:650=fin:2321 to 512+128:650=eng:2321

The time between event change and pid change is only ~1 second, as it
used to be ~5-7 seconds. It is now only ~2 seconds after the program has
started (when the program really starts, after the introduction).

How could I debug the delay between pid change in broadcast and pid
change in vdr?
