It has suddenly started working fine. Previously using dvbstream
to record didn't tune properly (orange light on device instead of
the green "tuned and locked" one) and created a zero-length file.
Now it is fine and no saturation problems either so far, and using
the exact same command line as well, as recovered by shell
command line recall.

I'll try your suggestions. Most likely a byte ordering issue I guess,
being PowerPC.

Thanks,

Tim.
