Yes I've found this ticket in the meantime.

No it doesn't seem to be a signal quality issue.
There is only on frequency where signal quality is very poor ( 
a8qam256-6900:426Mhz with only around 50%).
Here I don't expect any reasonable results.
The others are quite ok between 70% and 85%.
I cannot detect any packet losses in the net and as said before, it 
works fine with other software.

Yes. I can record and watch all this channels from the KNC-One 
PCI-tuners in my slave-backend, which is connected to the same 4-way 
antenna amplifier.

No it shows on all frequencies

That's right, provider is Unitymedia
