Comment (by stuarta):

 We need to provide an option to not record the
 interactive data streams when making a recording.

 I've just transcoded a stream which contained
 1 video, 1 audio, 1 subtitle and 4 data streams
 down to just 1 video & 1 audio stream. This was a
 straight mpeg-mpeg trancode so it amounts to dropping
 unwanted streams and a few short ad breaks. The file
 size has dropped from 4.9Gb to 2.8Gb.

 The tallies up with what I found when I initially investigated
 interactive tv support, that the recorded file sizes increase by
 about 30% on average when you record the interactive streams data
 streams as well. These streams only make sense for 'live tv'
