Maybe because you haven't applied it to your copy of version 1.7.10? ;-)

In hindsight I'm not sure whether the change "Fixed writing the PCR pid
into the PMT in cPatPmtGenerator::GeneratePmt()" was a good idea, because
VDR doesn't record the PCR pid at all.

I tend to revert that change, because I don't think that
a separate PCR pid is necessary in a recording. AFAIK the
PCR pid is only for live viewing.
