It seems that the DVB section parser is not in sync with the stream. It
should not deliver any packets until the first packet with PUSI set (it
should be in sync then), and should stop deliver packets in a
discontinuity condition, waiting for the next PUSI then.

So the section should IMHO never appeared into userspace. Sure it's
right to be prepared for invalid sections (and drop them), but in this
case, I suspect a driver/hardware bug.

Does the hardware use hardware section filtering?
