Hello everyone

I have noticed an annoying feature in my VDR setup and finally today

channels there is a small gap at the start of the actual program and
VDR has chosen to record the rest of the program in a new file.

This is also visible in live viewing and lately I noticed that this
seems to occur pretty much every time at the start of the news, so
today I recorded a small sample while saving the same channel on
another, identical, adapter using:

czap -a 1 -c channels.conf -r 'Yle TV1'
cp /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0 2014-10-12-tv1.out.ts

The files produced can be found here (about 200 MB):

The news program starts at about 2 min 15 seconds into the recordings

I know there are several other Finns lurking around on this list, but
as far as I know no-one else has reported this.

I'm guessing that the problem has something to do with subtitles and/or
audio tracks, but I'm certainly no expert.

I'm running VDR 2.1.6 with the following plugins:

I will test to see if the same happens with vanilla VDR and just the
