Just wondering, does it read on some DVB standard that PIDs must not
change in the middle of a program? Or that the language of a PID must
not change?

I'd say most of the recording restarts (which I get) are unnecessary as
the language update does not have an affect on the PIDs that are

Would it be difficult to check if any of the changes actually make a
change in PIDs that are recorded? If not, then there's no point in
restarting the recording. 

And yes, this has been discussed earlier, but it has to be in the old
mailing list archive :-)
