Thanks for the fast feedback.

That site has a lot wma /w DRM protected files and a lot of link
leading to 404 errors.

My idea was to place a clip of vdr recording, i.e. the entires subdir
with the extension .rec in my recordings. This allows to test the
entire chain vdr->home network->playback device (here raspbmc).

The .ts file alone would also do.
