I would agree, but I think the line of what is considered development 
discussion in this case is a little fuzzy.

On the FFmpeg-user list, I fear such discussion about ts muxing issues 
may get lost or not receive the attention of the audience it demands.

Rather than arguing about whether it's on- or off-topic, why don't we 
try to figure out what is wrong with ts muxing with regard to the files 
being demuxed on the PS3? If it is insisted upon, this could move back 
to FFmpeg-user.

A good start would be to have a sample ts file or so that is (/are) 
known to be working on a PS3 and a sample file that is known to be not 
working on a PS3 and the attention of someone who knows something about ts.
