For the record, I'm also having decoding problems from BBC-HD received 
from DVB-S.  However, I haven't done enough investigation yet to work out 
if the problem is with the decoder or the actual source data (i.e. 
corruption or buffer overruns during recording).

I can provide example recordings though if anyone else wants to look at 
the problem (but by virtue of being HD they won't be small).
