If you play it till the first advert break, then skip forward, then the seek process will jump back a few minutes. almost like the video is playing back faster than a counter that the seek system uses.  AV sync is fine. I've asked about this specific problem maybe a year ago and iirc was sugested to rebuild the seek table but that gave no solution. i think the thread died after that.

If that feeling is true, restores would obviously carry the problem forward. I know the db carrys a number of tables related to channel config so manually cleaning does have a good chance of missing something in the cleanup op and causing further issues.

Astra 2G 11127.00 22000 5/6

That channel is on the same mux as Channel 4 HD can you receive that ok?

What playback profile are you using VDPAU, VAAPI, Software decode? Try a 
different one.

4 Seven is not a channel I nomally use but will test this evening and 
see if I get similar issues.
