I've done some more hunting & think I may have found something. When the 
channel goes off-air the program map table changes. This is embedded in the 
recording & mythtv seems to use this off-air table instead of the earlier on-
air one. As a result, although mythtv sees the video & audio streams that 
we're interested in, it discards them in preference of whatever streams 
remain. In my case it discards the MPEG2VIDEO, MP3 and DVB_SUBTITLE streams & 
proceeds to playback the single DSMCC_B stream that replaces them.
