Comment (by skrull):

 Yes, I was living with that problem for last four months, until this week
 I decided to debug it. I went to #mplayerdev and asked for help, someone
 told me that sample was indicating wrong stream type on PMT. They also
 told me to submit to ffmpeg trac (and here we are).

 After that, I went to #hts (tvheadend). They asked for a raw mux dump.
 Today when I did record it and suddenly I could hear sound. tvheadend was
 always the same version.

 Also today, on XBMC channel sound settings (where I do select audio
 stream), the stream names changed to new ones. Based on this, I could spot
 they changed something.

 I could assure I did not change anything. But it would be nice if ffmpeg
 could play this file even if has wrong headers, in case my content
 provider chooses to mess up again :)

 BTW, WMP 12 plays that file fine.
