If you could get me a debug build backtrace I can probably fix
the SEGFAULT quickly. For the decoding of this text compression
it may just be bogus data causing the report; but if it isn't,
I can probably find the spec for it and implement the decompression
algorithm; or alternatively you could capture a raw data grab
and I could reverse engineer it.

Open a ticket for the backtrace and set the "Component" to "dvb".

For instructions, including how to get a debug backtrace, see here:
