Here is another version, that i've tested|debugged|pondered apon tonight when 
spending the time on freenode.org #mythtv with o_vee. I's working very well, 
but it  would take a lot of time to download that 50MB file over 128bps, so 
if Christian could test this it would be wonderfull, if he (or others) 
reports that it does not work for the same kind of fault, then I better start 
downloading the file.
