The "PSIP packet has..." is not related to the problem, it looks
like the signal monitor finds what it is looking for. But it also
looks like it is kept running too long, it has to be shut down
before DVB recording is started.

Can you try the latest tuning patch here:

Those Scanning problems are best left to someone in DVB land, this
is the scanning logic that works in England and Germany. But if the
frequency was messed up, then it may be your drivers, there was a
post a couple days ago about a fix for one of the DVB cards that
was returning the wrong frequency.
