[vdr] VDR-1.3.27: updated cVideoRepacker

I'd like to invite you to test the attached patch which now also 
supports MPEG1 video streams (vdr-1.3.27-remux-repacker.patch).

Besides that, a major change has been made in error reporting. Previous 
versions often reported a buffer overflow (although there was no buffer 
overflow) just as an indication for not beeing able to handle the data. 
Most likely this lead to the assumption that the repacker got stuck.

VDR-1.3.28 will also (most likely) receive the second attached patch 
"vdr-1.3.27-dvbplayer-sequence-end-code.patch". It will cause a still 
image to be immediately shown by (softdevices like) vdr-xine, e. g. when 
moving or jumping to cutting marks. Does this patch have any bad impact 
on FF-devices?

As old recordings (prior to VDR-1.3.26 or 1.3.27 with cVideoRepacker 
disabled) can have fragmented frames and VDR doesn't handle them 
correctly when passing still images to a device, it is hardly possible 
to edit cutting marks (at least) in vdr-xine for such recordings.

The patch http://home.vr-web.de/~rnissl/vdr-1.3.24-dvbplayer.patch is a 
hack to at least fix the I-frames needed for fast forward, fast rewind, 
slow rewind and editing cutting marks. As you may see, it collides with 
the attached dvbplayer patch, so you have to decide whether to use the 
attached one and just edit new recordings or to use the one taken at 
version 1.3.24 and be able to edit new and old -- but only MPEG2 --
