Since I'm in Canada, it is difficult for me to have access to broadcast 
H.264 content. Do you think it would be possible for you to send me some 
of these TS files? I'd like to have the h264 TS that worked (and what is 
the source of that file?) and some of these new hidef h.264 ts files 
from dvb-t/s. This could help us to improve the patch so it can work 
with hidef.

Please send me a personnal email (my address is in the signature bellow) 
and I will send you the information of a ftp server you can use to 
upload the files.

Thank you
