[vdr] Unable to record ITV HD (was : ITV HD)

I have tried to record "Kingdom" broadcasted on HD but even if I can watch it 
without problem "live" ( VDR 1.7.7+ Xine 0.9.2 + VDPau), the recording is 
zero size 

Is it the fact the video PID is non standard and VDR don't know how to record 
it (considering it is not video) ? 

By the way, recording of BBC HD or Anixe HD is nice at the same time ..

Is there also a patch to prevent VDR to set video PID to zero when using the 
option setup/DVB card/update name + Pids

Any help appreciated
