I disagree since I have two DVB cards (air2pc hd5000 and KWorld ATSC110) that both experience this problem. They fail with this error to the point where they are useless.  I can use MythTV but only for SD using an old BT878 card (not HD or ATSC).  My SD OTA reception is not very clear so I'm eager to move to ATSC recordings.

I have two AverMedia A180 DVB cards that do not experience this 
problem.  Sorry.  I believe it was already commented on that you could 
back down to a revision that does not have this problem so the 
"severity" you speak of is relative to your choice to run bleeding edge
