I've just made my first DVB-T recording, and it was the longest
TV-production ever, a 24h-long documentary. It was aired starting at 6.00
a.m. to 6.00 a.m.

The timestamp starts at 35860, resetting from 95443.5 to 0 right in the
file and continuing to 26824. The file plays fine on mplayer and converts
fine on mencoder.

If a timestamp would need to start at 0, for every digital receiver a
special stream would have to be generated. While possible in theory for
internet streaming, it can't be done for DVB. Therefore it's essential
that a timestamp may start from anywhere.
