DVB cards deliver the data in the raw TS format so this is the most 
"pure" form you can record in. The TS->PS conversion is performed by 
Myth if you're in PS mode, but that code isn't 100% kosher so it might 
or might not work depending on what you need.

It's not a header. TS and PS are different ways to hold the data. It's 
possible to convert losslessly between the two, but it's not trivial, 
and definitely not as simple as smacking on an extra header or something...
