#1487 closed defect (fixed)

MythTV can't write a PES packet exceeding 184 bytes.

This is breaking at least one channel for Oscar.

The problem is that while we can generate a PES packet in memory for something like a PMT, we only ever write out the first TS Packet of such a table. This works fine when the PMT fits in 188 bytes, but as we record more streams now and keep more descriptors than we used to we occasionally run into this limitation.

The solution is to add a TSPacket generator to PESPacket, and potentially to fix any problems ffmeg's mpegts.c might have with multi-ts-packet sections.

(In [9351]) Closes #1487. Allow MythTV to generate PMT tables exceeding 183 bytes..

The code could be used for any payload only PES packet, but we always write the same short PAT table at the moment, so I didn't bother with the extra complexity for that table.
