I truly believe there is a problem with the 0.19 record programs... I have
some transport stream analyser at work, maybe I'll try to put a 0.18 and
0.19 stream on my laptop and check them on monday.
I'll try Xine and Mplayer again.
Also, is there a way to use NVP with direct file access over NFS instead of
the Myth Protocol? Just want to compare aples to aples.
