A quick note ...

Someone emailed me because they could play some of their recordings anymore.

I didn't investigate at all, I just removed the mpeg.c patch ;
recompiled and it's all working fine again...

So it was definitely the culprit.

Here is what the recording detectswith the original mythtv mpeg.c code:
Stream #0, has id 0x480 codec id MPEG2VIDEO,
Stream #1, has id 0x448 codec id MP2, type Audio, bitrate 192000 at 0x0xacacec0

The patched one sees it as:
Stream #0, has id 0x0 codec id MP3, type Audio, bitrate 64000 at 0x0xa188a60

that's it.
