[mythtv-users] DVB-T recorder log - 'discontinuity detected' about twice a second

Hi: I've been trying to find out why one of the tuners in my
af9015-based dvb stick produces good recordings that die unexpectedly.
I ran "mythbackend -v none,record" and while it was making a test
recording got a blizzard of messages of the form
"2010-10-24 21:36:08.229 DVBRec(9:/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0): PID
0x259 discontinuity detected"
(where 9 is the cardid) about twice a second before the recording died.
Later, however, when the system was recording several programmes, I
found that some of the virtual tuners were each generating their own
variants of this message at much the same rate, and their recordings did
In these cased the PID quoted is identified by ffmpeg as
Subtitle: dvbsub, and by Project-X as
PID: 0x259(#5)(eng_0x10_p1_a1 ) or similar.
So it seems that these messages may not be a clue to my original
problem, but they do get in the way of efforts to solve it. Do they
mean anything, and once I have seen them can I turn off their reporting
without stopping and restarting the backend?
Google found a very recent reference to this message and some from four
years ago. I'm running 0.23-fixes in the UK.
