Well, I'm not suprised, but never underestimate the placebo effect :)

So, something went really broke while updating from 1.3.27 to 1.3.28 and
a quick look at VDR's HISTORY reveals these changes:

2005-08-07: Version 1.3.28

- Reactivated cVideoRepacker in remux.c after some fixes (thanks to Reinhard Nissl).
- Modified cEITScanner::Process() so that it uses the primary device if it is
  replaying and is the only device that provides the given transponder, and that
  a forced EPG scan works even if EPG scan timeout is set to 0 (thanks to
  Bernhard Stegmaier for reporting a problem with this).

Could you revert the changes above one by one and check if one or another
triggers the actual problem? You can easily deactivate the cVideoRepacker
by commenting the "#define TEST_cVideoRepacker" line in remux.c and the
eitscan.c changes are well documented in:
