This is all fine.

Nope, "TS header at 42" is just a report, that the parser found a valid 
TS header at position 42 (instead of 0) and resyncs itself. It's not an 
error condition.

The next part is more interesting: "Couldn't read data from the capture 
card in 15


It seems your dbox does not return any data. Please make sure it runs in SPTS mode and has a recent image. (I recommend yadi-2.x). Also make sure your ucodes are up to date.

I'm alive, nothing happened to me, just a bit too much work, Andrew ;)

Well,  if you have a choice - and ask me - stick with the dreambox. A 
100MBit/s NIC is just too nice to have ;) If you still decide to buy a 
DBox, I think the ones from Philips and Sagem are more stable than those 
from Nokia.
