Until bug 555 is fixed could you add an option to record in mpeg2ts directly instead of mkv
The mkv are definitively corrupted (see bug 555) and I have found no tools to corrects them. Until the problem is fixed, recording using knowingly a broken format annoys me very much unless we find a tool or write one to correct the files. FFmpeg enables to creates correct mkv from ts stream dump. Its painfull but at least I can play the result from various hardware decoder.
Or do I need to switch back to vdr? hope not.

Recording in TS format is a feature request not a bug. Please file a new feature request to ask for recordings in TS format.
In the mean time you can help out by testing the TS recording version to see if there are any other issues. You can find the code on github here: https://github.com/EkASs/tvheadend
