Maybe I can shed some light on the cause of this behavior, at least the symptoms I see are very similar to what I saw when I first tried MDAPI; it only happens when you tune a new frequency and only with encrypted channels. I'm not an expert at video or DVB-streams, but I'll try to explain the problem as I understood it from the code:
With certain DVB-tuner cards, when you tune to a new frequency, the first ts-packets can get skewed in the sample (as it's called in the code). Let's say that the first ts-packet of the new channel only consists of the last 80 bytes and not the 188 bytes it's supposed to be. This means that you get one incomplete ts-packet and the last 80 bytes of the last ts-packet in every sample will be missing from that sample and instead be the first 80 bytes of the next sample, and all ts-packets will be skewed in the samples until the DVB-tuner drivers correct this.
With MDAPI you would get several lines in the log from line 1059 and a couple from line 1112 of this file: mdapifilter.cpp
So my question is: Does Tvheadend/xbmc handle this?

new packages have been published on the xbmc-pvr PPA. if you're having troubles after upgrading, go to system->settings->livetv and reset the TV database there.

thanks, but how can I update from odk14 based on xbmc-live? apt-get upgrade is not available, apt-get install xbmc removes some required packages. upgrade with apt-get install from odk6 to odk14 worked fine. any idea?

try to install each package with version number i.e.:
apt-get install xbmc=2:11.0-pvr+odk16~git20110408.e686e63-0ubuntu1~ppa+odk16~maverick

each of the new or those that are removed with installation of new xbmc ppa versions? If I try that with new versions, xbmc-live , xbmc-standalone etc still gets removed, and I think if I wanted to install those removed it had unmet dependencies on older packages (not installed anymore because of upgrade)

hmm I did test an upgrade from an existing xbmc (non-live) on maverick on a vm and it looked fine here.
I'll check out the upgrade once I get home.

ok, found the problem. I ran my tests on maverick, which had uxlaunch in it's repo. it's not available in lucid and karmic, so the packages are showing unmet dependencies and can't be upgraded properly.
reverting back to last time's xbmc-packaging should fix the problem for now. I'll publish fixed packages tonight or tomorrow.
