VDR would have to convert TS to PES and back to TS to do this, as you
usually don't want to record everything on a transponder.
Basically, there's no problem to convert the stream content between TS,
PS and PES, but as I said, VDR recordings are far from being a simple
video file. A straightforward conversion to PS will result in a PS video
that will drive most players crazy. TS stream players are more robust to
handle live streams, and even they sometimes loose A/V sync.
