I assume programs like this above ("Program 1170", "Kahani-HD") are the
ones you are looking for?

To decode/record/encode/whatever only one of these programs, you need
to use the "-map" option with stream specifiers:


So either
$ ffmpeg -i [...] -map 0:6 -map 0:7 [...]
$ ffmpeg -i [...] -map 0:p:1170

The former selects the streams according to their IDs given in your
output as "Stream #0:6[0x71]: Video: [...]". The latter selects the
program, and ffmpeg will select the according streams.

Good luck,
