The easiest way to track it down would be to change channels and watch for
when the message occurs and the channel change fails (I believe it does a
return; now when no PIDs are set so the DVB recorder probably wont work)..
once you see what channel it happens on make sure it has both a video and
audio pid set.  If you're used to manually using the database, SELECT *
from dvb_pids WHERE Type = 'a' OR Type = 'v' and you should have an even
number 2* the number of DVB channels you have.
