Are you using the cvs version of the plugin? If not, you should give it 
a try. There is a fix which send a new PMT with relevant pids each time 
a channel is performed. You can verify using a tool like dvbsnoop. If 
the screen is still black, it is a problem of the PCH player. Even if 
the new channel is not playing, going back to previous one must show the 
proper picture.
