Misidentified encrypted QAM channel

Daniel, this is a capture of -v channel,siparser,record from my QAM channel that I posted on -dev about that the backend thinks is encrypted but I can capture from. The really weird part is that I am unable to playback these recordings I believe because the audio is messed up. mplayer reports that there is no audio when trying to playback but you can see from the attached logs that AC3 audio streams are reported. I have also put the clip that was recorded with these logs at

I've also attached the frontend playback logs with -v playback for this clip where you can see it fails to play and that while it detects audio streams, their bitrate is zero which led me to suspect this is the problem.

I hope you can determine both any reason for the encrypted flag as well as what is going on with the audio streams.

I'm sure this isn't what you wanted to hear, but MythTV was doing the right thing all along. The video is not encrypted, but both audio streams are.
