I did some simple test in vlc-0.3.0 stable, and a few bugs are found in 
satellite input with WinTV Nova card:

*) switching programs at the same frequency makes vlc crash. It is 
actually better in the latest cvs (today).
*) video and audio has artefacts (TS packets get dropped)
     --> possible problem fix make sure you read in multiples of 188 bytes
     from satelitte card *fast enough*.
     --> check *fast enough* with TS continuity counter (is in hex value)

Reading TS from file:
*) the --input_programs works from the commandline *good work* ;-)
*) from the user interface it does not work.
