this does not seem to help.

I have three test channels now, all of which give the video:

- The Albanian Rrokum TV - which gives also audio.
- Bahn TV - only video.  Even with ab=192
- BBC One premier (via http://www.global-itv.com/).  Only video

My xine has w32 (from xine's output:
load_plugins: plugin 
/usr/local/lib/xine/plugins/1.1.9/xineplug_decode_w32dll.so found

The script sets VPID=parameter+1, APID=parameter+2, SPID=parameter+3
(I wonder why, since if you want to receive simultaneously two 
consecutive parameter things, they overlap anyway).

When looking at the stream info, they show PIDs like 3,4,66.  4,5,66.
I wonder what this 66 is and why...
