I found that I had these moments of pixellation and spits and pops with 
PS and TS. I believe its my signal level that is the problem.  But I've 
found that TS mode is better at recovering from these moments, whereas 
with PS mode it will lose the audio track.

Also, is there a way from within the frontend to show the signal 
strength of the DVB signal?
