DVBViewer is recording files as .ts, doesn't that mean nothing should be

Also, quite often with Myth data isn't being captured such as Teletext or
DVB subtitles. This is not the case in DVBViewer it will capture both
everytime and you can select if you want to record those streams or not.
What are the possible reasons why Myth isnt capturing these? (apart from
the fact that the streams are not being carried on the program/channel).
