I'm tidying up changes made to the softdevice plugin to get it working with vdr

I have some errors I'd like to track down.

Are the PES packets provided to the primary device's PlayVideo function purely 
video and audio packets? It looks to me like the PAT and PMT are stripped out 
so that only MPEG2 (no HD for me at the moment) audio and video packets should 
get to PlayVideo(), and so the primary device should play _all_
packets sent to it. Is this correct?

I'm getting quite a few errors from avcodec complaining that decoded video 
frames have width and height set to 0. This tends to be at the start of a 
stream, i.e. on channel changing or starting playback.

Are there any packets sent which don't contain any "playable" data that I need 
to test for and handle?

If you're not sure, I suggest you only explicitly handle the packets
you know you can handle, and ignore the rest.

Maybe I should bite the bullet and implement a decoder for PlayTsVideo()..!

That would certainly be a good idea.
