[Ffmpeg-devel] Unrecognized file from DVB box

I recently used a KAON digital set top box that allows people to record 
programs and copy the resulting files to a computer. The resulting files 
are not recognized by any FFMpeg powered video player or even current 
svn's ffplay. The tv bitstream has MPEG-2 video and Dolby Digital sound, 
but when I try to play it I get the following error:

[mp3 @ 0x843ab14]Could not find codec parameters (Audio: mp3, 48 kb/s)

I have uploaded a sample (robbie.zip) file to incoming. It is 12 megs in 
size. I chose not to cut it down to 10 megs, because the box also writes a 
meta data text file describing the recording and it has references to the 
file size and such.

PS I'm not subscribed so please cc.
