The threshold for a DVB lock is not under MythTV's control, it is set
in the driver. My guess is that this is set a little too high.

Do you know if they look for the FE_LOCK to be set, or do they just wait
for data?

Nothing in MythTV will fix this, unless you use the V4L pcHDTV
drivers and set the threshold low. However you might want to
look at the driver perhaps the FE_LOCK threshold can be set in
the driver.

I'll look at the driver eventually, but the XvMC skipping problem
is the most serious problem in my realm of expertise right now.
