Any comments on C.Y.M's point that PCR should be recorded/used?
-> http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/vdr/2006-October/011061.html

As far as I understand this, VDR ignores the TS-layer PCR timing data 
(which, as far as I understand this, controls the raw data rate fed to 
the decoders) and the syncing is done by DVB driver/firmware based on 
the timing information in the underlying PES headers. Since the DVB 
playback also works on PES layer and accepts data on all-you-can-eat 
base, I'm not sure whether feeding the DVB device on PCR based data 
rates would help, or how PCR should be forwarded to the DVB hardware.
