Yes, and I could drop the rest as I just wrote a TS->PES parser. :)

Implementing this on dvbrecorder would only require commenting out few
lines and modifying one. One question I do not know the answer to is
"Can the player code handle TS stream?" and apparently if HDTV code
already does it like this player can handle it.

Well, I have a working, quite clean implementatio of TS->PES  parser.
If that is the way to go. TS -> PES conversion has to be done at some
point, question is whether it should be done in recorder of player. I
do not know the pros and cons or either.

This concerns the metadata?
