As listed in my first mail indeed.

No. And *as Klaus* I dunno why this should be needed except if other 
parts of the logics for finding an I-frame is not robust enough for 
certain streams.

What really annoys me, is rather the duplication of identical bug 
reports for various DVB type (DVB-S2, DVB-T), various adapter in various 
countries when playing the stream is just fine.

For the record for myself in france, I can see gulli channels (a kid 
channel) but fail to record it and m kids are just complaining when I 
told them to go to sleep and that I will record it and it failed. Now I 
have more difficulties to send them to sleep ;-)
