Hmmm ... this implies that the offset

          off_t   o  = (off_t) (ul & 0x0000ffff) + 3;

is not correct because the stream is moved forward

          dvb += o;

to the start of the  magic word of the frame which should
start there.  As this works with stuff from DVD trailers
I assume that something goes wrong elsewhere, e.g. in the
cDolbyRepacker class.

OK it _is_ a bug in the cDolbyRepacker class, therefore
I've added Reinhard to CC.

IMHO the declaration of AppendSubStreamID includes
an error:

  void cDolbyRepacker::AppendSubStreamID(void)
    if (subStreamId) {
       pesHeader[pesHeaderLen++] = subStreamId;
       pesHeader[pesHeaderLen++] = 0x00;
       pesHeader[pesHeaderLen++] = 0x00;
       pesHeader[pesHeaderLen++] = 0x00;
The minimal size is 0x01 and never 0x00

... OK, in the firmware I've included a workaround for
such broken sub audio header.  Nevertheless this should
be corrected :^)  ... Reinhard?
