I don't know if this is relevant, but ffmpeg -i used to report
Stream #0.3[0x25d](eng): Subtitle: dvbsub
and now it gives - obviously this isn't the same channel -
Stream #0:3[0x69](eng): Subtitle: dvb_subtitle ( / 0x0006)
I'm not yet sure when the change occurred but think it's quite recent.
Seems unlikely to explain a difference in recordings taken at similar times.
