I don't have any benchmarks, but I have no reason to think so. I think it is a combination of DVB channel change time, plus the relatively long period of time it takes myth to buffer up some stuff and get going. (Personally I think it is too slow for livetv viewing as it stands though. Something like 3-4 secs to change channel. Makes a good video recorder though)
I might be comparing apples and oranges though. For example does the PVR250 have instant channel changes?

That would be very interesting! Are you thinking about something for when use_ts=1 or more generally to tweak the DVB driver?
What is your "dvb status" btw? Are you still waiting on your building to add cabling, etc?
