[mythtv-users] Intermittent BBC recording problem

In the last few weeks, I've started seeing an irritating problem with
recordings of BBC channels.  There seems to be what looks like an
intermittent reception problem - every 20-30 minutes or so, the
recording appears disrupted (typical digital TV blocking you'd see with
bad reception, skipping etc) for roughly 3 minutes and then is fine,
until the cycle starts again.  So far it only seems to be affecting BBC

The backend system is an Asrock ION 330-HT, with 2GB RAM.  Recordings
are saved to a Synology NAS mounted via autofs/NFS over GigE.  The
capture device is a Hauppauge Nova-TD USB stick, with twin tuners.  It's
running Fedora 14 with 0.24 RPMs from RPMFusion.

I'm playing recordings via uPnP on a PS3.

Is there something I should look for in the backend log that would help
track this down?  It's becoming rather annoying...
