livetv flickering images (works ok if watched with mplayer)

I'm having some trobules watching some channels of my DVB-T stick.

Most channels work ok, but I have some of them (30% of the channels) that present the following problems/symptoms:

  • Each x seconds, the image "flickers", as is a photogram was inserted in the stream (out of order) for tenths of second
  • If I open the EPG while watching one of those channels, the little PIP on the top right corner of the screen grows in height, overlapping the EPG (I believe -not sure- that this "growth" is produced at the same time that the flickering appears)
  • The same mpg stream that mythbackend saves works ok with mplayer (no flickering at all)

In the following URLs you can find a cut of the MPEG stream that produces the error (8MB), the logs for mythfrontend (level=important,general), the logs for mplayer (just in case they help, MPLAYER_VERBOSE=1) and a picture of what happens with the EPG (notice the dark square under the PIP... that appears with the flickering and, I force the redraw of that areea (moving the selector square to that position), it is overwriten again and again...)

Any hint/workaround will be welcome. I'll glad to provide you with any other information, streams, logs, whatever you need to fix this.

Sorry, URLs are not valid, the files for the bug investigation are now located here:

Sorry... I've found that my domain has expired and I'm trying to migrate it to another provider, but I believe that it will take a 60-days battle to make my current provider release my domain :(

Does this problem still occur with trunk? There have been a couple of ffmpeg resyncs since the ticket was opened.

The problem seems to be solved, maybe it was some problem with the emitter ¿? Or maybe some update of my linux system... thanks anyway
