I've noticed something like this here, but I'm not sure it's the same.

If I'm watching a recording while it's still recording, and I'm right up
to the end (~2 seconds behind according the OSD), I gradually get
further behind. After a few minutes I might be 10-20 seconds behind.

However, if I hit forward, I don't actually move any further forward -
the OSD now says I'm ~2 seconds behind, but the video is unchanged.
It appears that I wasn't really behind, but the timer thought I was.

I have DVB-T too (a pair of them), but 2600+ CPU and GF4MX440, so I
don't think it's that.
