I can only think of transfer buffer overflows which cause calling 
cRemux->Clear(). After that, the c*Repacker instances resync and may 
tell some error messages.

Would you please run VDR with Option   -l 3   to get dsyslog() messages 
logged and supply a reasonable excerpt of /var/log/messages?

Do you get this messages from the transfer thread's instance of cRemux 
or from the recording thread's instance? If VDR is not running in NPTL 
mode, then you can "simply" tell this by looking at the process id which 
is part of every syslogged message.
