The only other idea i've just had is clock drift between the
masterback end and the slave that actually has this capture card in.
Since they both sync to different sources (one is a timeserver out on
the net and the other is the DVB time signal). It may be time to dig
out the time server howto.

Thanks for the ok on the negtive finnish late times.
