That sounds like exactly what I was seeing. I looked in trac but
didn't find 9201. I also reported the problem here, but no one
noticed the connection with 9201 (I don't think I mentioned live
TV because I hadn't realised that was involved in the problem).
I was also confused because the problems started just after
I added freesat to my system, and I was seeing lots of h264
errors, which now look to be nothing to do with it. My
problems were always while watching live tv. I'd see "Video frame
buffering failed too many times." or "Error opening jump program
file buffer". mythbackend would often crash, reporting corrupted
memory, although the crash wasn't always directly after the
failed channel change.

I've been shy of using livetv while anything important is
recording or about to record, so I haven't seen the problem
for a while, but I'll try out your patch, and give my
system a bit of a hammering.
