If the stream recorded breaks up on a regular basis, this is
going to affect the playback, yes.

Which make/model of DVB card are you using?
Which driver release is in use with this card?

If you have a nVidia Graphics Adapter, you should turn on:
MythFrontend / Setup / TV Settings / Playback / Experimental A/V Sync

And make sure you have a recent driver that supports this,
which is at the moment 1.0-4363 (1.0-4496 is missing this feature).
