Exact.  That is not a "true" TS as some mandatory PID's is missing.
PAT/PMT/SDT/NIT/SID ...  I'm sure there is someone who can explain
exactly what PIDs you need to get i compliant TS.

You need to include some more PIDs, or use another player.

I use mplayer which is more "forgiving".  http://www.mplayerhq.hu/
