[mythtv] MPEG2: Picture start, but no GOP

I am using an HD-2000 card to pull in HDTV material.  It works great 
with all of my digital over-the-air channels except for UPN and WB.  
Those two channels are owned by the same company here in Albuquerque.  
They do not broadcast in HD, but it is digital SD.

In trying to diagnose the problem, it looks to me like there is NEVER a 
GOP start indicator.  It looks like it does occationally see a "Picture 
Start" indicator.  The notes at the top of hdtvrecorder.cpp indicate 
that Jason Hoos set it up such that a "Picture Start" indicator is "good 
enough", but it does not seem to work for my UPN/WB stations.

Jason, if you are still on this list, can you give me some guidance on 
what to look for?
