In an attempt to debug this I just made some recordings from channels
with VPID==PPID and VPID!=PPID, namely

RTL Television,RTL;RTL World:12187:hC34M2O0S0:S19.2E:27500:163=2:104=deu;106=deu:105:0:12003:1:1089:0
BVN;CANALDIGITAAL:12574:hC56M2O0S0:S19.2E:22000:515+8190=2:96=dut:36:0:5025:53:1109:0

Both recordings were replayed without problems using the Windows Media Player
on Windows XP. It didn't even make a difference whether the PCR pid in the
PMT was set to an actual value or to 0x1FFF.

I was under the impression that the WMP was one of those players
that have problems if there is no PCR, but apparently it plays just fine...
