Thank you so much, Carl Eugen! Probably the most valuable hint I have
gotten in a long time.

The VU+ forums aren't of much help. Everybody seems to use "media
player" applications on the PVR anyway, but its MPEG-TS player is just
the best (except for subs supports). It also handles ffmpeg's MPEG-TS
just fine except for the named restrictions.

I'm off looking for this patch...
