this is purely a guess as i don't know how mythtv handles playback timing.
are your machines all accurate system clocks? ntp would probably be easiest but maybe one of your machines is +-3mins from another (i'm assuming you've split FE&BE).

also is this just on one channel? i think it's on the UK 4seven channel then the skip/ffwd/rwd will be out the futher your are into the program. appears to be a channel issue and the devs here determined the channel is broadcasting the datastream weirdly.
