Hi all,

  in [d7455f3749f90c1b4d3d9b9d37b131dbc4d091eb] I just enabled time info
to be displayed also when MPEG-TS from DVB is reveived over network.

However, it still doesn't work with RTP input, because it returns zero for
demux_Control(DEMUX_GET_TIME|DEMUX_GET_LENGTH). The same is true for

To fix, it's necessary to patch RTP input to pass those two Control() calls
down the chain to stream_Demux in case MPEG-TS is being received.

And it's also necessary to patch stream_Demux to pass them to the real demux
(TS for this case).

Any pitfalls / show stoppers here?

    Thanks & kind regards,
