I think I found the reason:
When watching live-tv, the automatic frame rate adaption (as per )
doesn't work. So, by default, my display runs @ 60Hz, and should be
switched to 50Hz when watching live-tv (I live in a PAL country). But it
is not switched, as xrandr confirms.
When I record that very show, and then play it back from the recordings
list, the display is correctly switched! I created two dedicated -v
none,playback logs. Just looking for the switching statements show for
$ grep Trying log.tv

And for the recording:
$ grep Trying log.rec

If filed a bug report for this .
