This patch broke it royally in my testing with ivtv-created MPEG2-PS files.  We
will need to find a way to differentiate between ivtv-created files and the 
DVB-created ones. 

Could you do a manual recording of 1 or 2 minutes for me to download for
testing purposes?  I don't have access to DVB recordings (and I don't think
Chris does either).

The first one will likely be committed as it seems to have no nasty affects
to MPEG2-PS files from ivtv.  The first size you try is 1MB which is the
default, so it effectively does the same thing for the ivtv files.

The second one we will need to find a different solution to that is a bit more
elegant :)
