Thanks for the explanation, Thierry!

I now have tried to convert via ffmpeg.  The command I used was

  ffmpeg -vcodec copy -acodec copy z.ps.mp2 -i z.ts

This creates pack headers which don't seem to fit to the syntax
defined in table 2-33 of iso-13818-1:

  00 00 01 ba 21 00 01 00  01 a1 9f 0d 00 00 01 bb

This looks strange to me.  According to the syntax, the pack
header should be 14 bytes.  Maybe I used the wrong options and
created  a mpeg1 stream?
