Aha...  I didn't try it extensively enough, but I *think* that it was not strictly channel specific for me, but more program specific.  eg, BBC 1 was fine for a while, then when the next program started it wouldn't play well at all.  Die Hard was showing on another channel and that was fine, but I think I later tuned into the news which interrupts the middle of the film, and that wasn't playing properly, etc

Again, didn't watch each channel long enough, but it was more like a problem where certain types of video stream were not playing properly, and clearly with DVB each program can be broadcast in a different way.

Anyway, at least someone else is seeing something similar so perhaps I can assume it is not just the change in DVB card?  I will try rolling back cvs tonight and see if I can't see which patch caused the problem (unless you already have an idea?)

Thanks Kenneth
