You need to apply the diff in 19094 (not reverse it) to make the backend
ignore IDR and solve the problem.
I had to do the same using a Hauppauge HVR4000/DVB-S2 on Canal Digital
Nordic (Norway) . I first tested by upping the 16sec (16000msec in the
code) timer in the player to 10min and timed how long it took for the
back-end to find an IDR-frame and start recording. The results varied a
bit between attempts on a channel, but more across the different
channels. An average for 10 attempts differed from 18sec on the "best"
channel to 7min52sec on the worst.
