You can take the parameters from the command in your verbose output.

/usr/share/ffmpeg -loglevel error -stats -y -i
-c:v copy -c:a copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc

The syntax is
ffmpeg -i=<infile> -c:v copy -c:a copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc <outfile>.mp4
where <infile> is your .hls.ts file and <outfile>.mp4 is the output file. 
You can add -loglevel=error  and -stats but you don't need them.  -y tells 
it to overwrite the output file if it already exists.  You may find it 
easier to rename the input and output files to something shorter.

As far as I know get_iplayer used the same code to download HLS and HVF, so 
you are probably right that changing from one to the other makes no 
difference.  What trying to isolate faults it is a good idea to keep 
everything as similar as possible and change one item at a time.
