I think the idea is to select _one_ of the services from the TS
by giving the service_id to iso13818ps. And maybe even select
a subset of the PES streams by giving their ids, too. But I have
to admit I never used iso13818ps. At Convergence we used iso13818ts
so that one is know to work.

How do you capture the TS, and does it play OK in vlc?
