And it does this even when something else is being received on the same
multiplex. (I've only tested this with live viewing of a different channel.)

Maybe it needs to check whether other PIDs are present on that multiplex? If
data is then received, there is nothing wrong: it is likely that the channel
is part-time or that there is a *transmission* problem, e.g. a channel has
been erroneously deleted.

Don't look now, but there is a multi-legged creature on your shoulder.
