The file is a SPTS with the same PAT and PMT (program) that was in the 
original MPTS. Naturally vlc does not display a program stream, because 
it does not know. Earlier version did this (probably just looked at PID 
in the stream).

How do I specify a program number when playing a TS from file ? 
Selecting it from the user interface "View|Program" does not work.

Yep, just found out that there is a menu under "View" that is called 
"Program". It lists all programs in the stream. I selected one to look 
and .... voila video again. ;-)

Still cannot read the TS file.
