I've been running PS mode and have had many audio drops on signal
glitches. Happens on MP2 only channels as well as those with AC3 and MP2.

I have just tested this as well as having no changes from CVS.

Not enough testing yet to see if audio drops but I am getting a problem
switching between Ten (1) and ABC (2) when using TS mode. Happens with
and without the above patch.

These channels are not showing more than one audio stream so I cannot
test if this brings audio back. Running scan is showing AC3 on Ten though:
TEN Digital (0x0641) 01: PCR 0x0080 V 0x0200 A 0x028a (eng)
TT 0x0240 AC3 0x028b
ABC TV Queensland (0x02c1) 01: PCR 0x0901 V 0x0200 A 0x028a (eng)
TT 0x0240 AC3 0x0294
I seem to recall this problem existing previously with two channels
having the same PIDs for audio. I cannot recall the fix (if any). I will
have search the archives when I get a chance.
Switching to Ten or ABC from any other channel gives audio. Also
quitting live starting live again works.
