[vdr] Choice of recording format

I was just wondering what prompted the move from recording in PES to TS.
Is it because TS is more widely supported? And how does it solve the
problem of BBC HD having the wrong PID for audio?

And why TS instead of PS? Is it because PS needs a header which is
difficult to generate before all the packets intended for it are
available (and hence difficulties overlapping playback and recording)?
Or is it because the way recordings are played back makes TS more
