>From vdr 1.7.1 announcement:
This version marks the first step towards using TS (Transport Stream) as
recording format. It does this by switching the Transfer Mode to TS and
introducing all the necessary cDevice and cPlayer functions to handle TS.
Actual recording is still done in PES, though.
This should provide a reasonable developing and testing environment for
HDTV device plugins to prepare for replaying TS.
Maybe xineliboutput doesn't support ts playback?
