Yes, but it will only address that type of entry. It looks like most of
the messages are for something else.

Lots of these messages indicates some problem with the TS->PES
conversion. I assume most of these are on the channel without
working EIT?

Logs aren't going to help with this, a 30 second capture of the
raw TS stream from that channel, including the EIT tables, is
needed. Then a developer can step through the data manually to
see where things go wrong.
