The rapsberry pi has recently come out with experimental firmware release to fix this issue. See here-
I also found out that the Xbian team has release a new version that should fix this issue.
I loaded the new firmware and omxplayer on my pi and despite this I am still having trouble playing HGTV and DIY channels. (I haven't checked any others) I still get sound and no video

I did run a debug log. http://pastebin.com/FRZs8SVp Having done all that I realize I may be just a bit too impatient to wait for the new Raspbmc release but I enjoy the troubleshooting process. Any ideas are appreciated. Many thanks.
