Yup, record...see that now.

But if his patch is missing a type, you can use other until you submit a
patch for it.

Breaks AC3? Just put the AC3 pid in either audio or other?

Yes, I can see that now. Misunderstood the code a bit.

We are talking about MythTV here?

Currently the player does not support multiple audio/video streams, audio
gets mixed together into a mess, and video I think crashes the player.

Seems that we need to make some small changes to the Player, so that it uses
the two first streams (for now).
