I have the same problem plus one more problem...
I'm using the Kaffeine as DVB viewer. I tune one channel and start to
watching, after a few minutes the video is broken (full of colorful
boxes) and audio is full of glithees. If I stop the watching and tune
the same channel again, the video and audio is ok. But (again) after
some minutes the video and audio is broken again.
Maybe some tuning module parameters can help.

BTW: I don't know if there can be a problem, but after I insmod the
saa7134-dvb module, the driver will share the interrupt with libata
(SATA driver) and with uhci_hcd (USB2.0 driver).

# cat /proc/interrupts
            CPU0       CPU1
  18:     459548          0   IO-APIC-level  libata, uhci_hcd, saa7134[0]
