Is there a way to capture TS stream from the card (using 'cat' or 
something else?) without disturbing mythbackend? I've tried to capture 
streams using 'cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0' but that somehow affects myth.

If e.g. active EIT scanning is started and I execute cat in another 
shell, active scanner seems to be stopped somehow. And if I put cat to 
hold (Ctrl-Z), active scanner re-activates. And when I bring cat command 
to foreground ('fg'), myth scanning pauses again.

I only have one card so cannot capture stream from other while myth uses 
the other.

I could capture stream without myth, but then it's just pure guessing 
whether that stream would cause the stream of PES packet errors.. Any 
ideas what to do next?
