I'm experiencing a similar issue after moving to 0.22-fixes (and 0.23 

When watching live tv and changing the channel, I get the following 
error on the backend...
DevRdB(/dev/video0) Error: Poll giving up
MPEGRec(/dev/video0) Error: Device error detected
DevRdB(/dev/video0): Stop(): Not running.

And this happens on the frontend...
[aac @ 0x7f2128a14920]channel element 0.5 is not allocated
audio stream changed
DEnc, Error: Could not open codec, invalid bitrate or samplerate
Segmentation fault

I'm guessing this has to be an issue with Myth, because the same setup 
worked when I was using 0.22 from trunk.  It only started after 0.22 
moved to stable.

I get the same results with the 0.23 trunk.
