Yeah, I could have explained my reasoning a bit better. I suggested
that over just doing a reindex for two reasons:

1. The TS stream will be converted to a PS stream which will decrease
the size, probably significantly on a multi-hour sports broadcast.

2. It will fix any MPEG2 container errors that might trip up Avidemux
or other conversion utility.
