TS.  I can't get the 1080i stations running smoothly with the PS...

Looks like the PCR stream isn't there.  I've got the PMT, NIT, Video, 
MPEG Audio and AC3 Audio.  No PCR :-(.

A place to start looking anyway... Although the code looks pretty 
straight forward.  A job for tomorrow.

Yeah well, we get either MPEG, AC3, or MPEG+AC3.  And you can usually 
find all the combinations at any particular time!

I think there is a rule here that the SD stream must have MPEG (but 
additional AC3 optional), but the HD stream is a free-for-all.
