I have recently fixed some reception problems I was having such that I
can record whole programs without any uncorrected errors being logged.
However, sometimes the MPEG decoder messages and the crash still occur.

The MPEG decoder should never crash. Strangely enough I have run
mythcommflag on the same recordings and it hasn't crashed, though I
assume the algorithm (and code) is identical.
