5.12.740 no pids specified

Well hopefully this hasn't already been covered as a look around the beta section didn't turn up any mentions....

If I write a full transport stream to a file and then open it in Videoredo 5.12.740 it displays the first channel it came across without problem, but if I attempt to change to one of the other channels in the file via Tools > Select Stream > Video I get an error message No PIDs specified when trying to open a transport stream. I've increased the Mbytes to scan at file open to 500 and the PMT sample points to 100 but they made no difference.

I've tried it with the 7 Network (a mix of MPEG2 and MPEG4 channels) and ABC (MPEG2 only), a couple of Australian networks.

VLC will let me change between the channels in the files without any problem.

740 is known to have problems with TS files.
Try another container... .MP4 or MKV and see how it works.

This is something I've already fixed for the next beta. When I wrote the new code I didn't havea file with multiple video PIDs to test with so I never tested the code. I've since received a sample from another user and used it to test and fix the video PID switching.
