Try turning off the PMT-PID filter in the process window (Edit menu)
and enabling the 'log max 500 warnings' option on the Messages menu.

I've noticed the turning off the PMT-PID filter can sometimes cause
some streams to not be demuxed (in which case I turn it back on) but I
normally leave it enabled. You may also want to alter your DVB
recording profile to not record the interactive TV content if you do
not need/want it.
