I would have to say that this is exactly the same thing I have been experiencing
for years and years. But, this never happens with budget cards.. only FF cards.
My guess is that it is firmware/driver related. But, since only a handful of
people have the source code to the firmware, it is virtually impossible to fix.
we could work around it by using mplayer with mpegpes to playback the
problematic recordings and live tv is never an issue. I would just like another
way of playing back the recordings in VDR w/o having to rely on the firmware of
the FF card that nobody can fix.
