I've made good progress with this now: it all seems to work after a bit of 
a shaky start-up! It will only run if run from a script to restart it 
multiple times.

There is something with the startup of softdevice that causes a 
segmentation fault: it's level of error checking in it's startup neesd 
improving. It can restart about five times or so before it starts 
properly. I need to track down the source of this.

It can also take a few seconds for the video to appear when starting up, 
changing channel, or starting or stopping a recording. Audio instantly 
changes on all of these so the streams are there and can be decoded. (The 
audio is used presented "as is" and the video is delayed or speeded up to 
keep in sync.)

Once it has managed to start up and the video has appeared, it all seems 
pretty stable. I can play old and new format recordings too.
