I did another retune but that I truncated the mythconverg tables related to 
tuning and channel information. Usually I just truncate the following:

program, channel, channelscan, channelscan_channel, 
channelscan_dtv_multiplex, dtv_multiplex

but this time I also truncated:

eit_cache (empty), pid_cache (empty) and dtv_privatetypes

After that I did a full scan for all channels and the 'red button' came back 
up. So I can only think that the table 'dtv_privatetypes' held some 
redundant information which mythtv (this is a database I've been using since 
0.21) was still reading and applying. I have also noticed that the table 
dtv_privatetypes no longer has any information in it (likewise with 
pid_cache and eit_cache).

I now have the 'red button' back but it still consumes a lot of CPU which 
causes the video to stop / start everytime I use the 'red button'.

I was also going to re-compile fixes/0.24 with the iplayer.diff file but the 
lastest version on your website is coming up as a binary file.

Anyway thanks for all the help,
