The problem with the vanhsihing audio in livetv (in TS mode) is in mpegts.c, but
I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet.. The streams are properly added to the
file / ringbuffer, but when they are played back the streams happen to be
removed in 2 places, so when you change channels they are removed and never
added back if they happen to use the same PID.. You can try commenting out the
av_remove_stream() stuff in avformatdecoder.cpp which seems to fix it, but I
still am not happy with the way mpegts.c handles pmt versioning, so I haven't
committed anything yet..

Try commenting out the av_remove_stream() code in avformatdecoder and using ts
mode and report back if that fixes your problem.. If so I might commit a patch
to remove that stream removal stuff since its really borked..
