When old vdr recorded from satellite (into a program 
stream for which dvbsub are most likely not defined) 
why (or better:) how would the dvbsubs that were 
transmitted suddenly become dvdsubs?

My main question is: Why was this only reported now?
Is it necessary to force (old) vdr to produce such 
broken streams?

I created ticket #4855.

Thank you for the sample, Carl Eugen
