I tried setting video buffers to 5000 and audio buffers to 500, but it 
didn't change anything.
Unsurprising, since with the default settings I have no problem with HD 
and these channels are SD and at a fairly low bitrate.
Besides, the same xine with the same configuration had no problem 
playing the stream from dvbstream, and the fact that all output plugins 
are doing the same points to a lower level problem.
The dxr3 plugin still uses pes video, so I first suspected cTsToPes, but 
the recording test made me think of something else.
