The log shows that a MHEG program was received and ran OK.  However, the
timestamps indicate that the system is either heavily loaded or very
underpowered.  The time to process the MHEG program is over 6 minutes!
This should normally be a few seconds.  There's a problem with video
buffer underruns also indicating a very slow machine.  I'm guessing that
the MHEG program drew the red button logo and then removed it before it
ever got displayed.

Before going any further I think that you need to sort out the
performance of the system.
