I've now recorded a series of recordings sourced from a PVR-500 (via VDR 
pvrinput plugin) and from a DVB-C card - and it's not conclusive.  I can't 
repeat the problem with any new recordings.

All I know is, I have a few 720x576 recordings made which, on playback 
through the DVB-C FF card (mpeg-pes), have stuttered sound.  Playback on the 
same box with vdr-xine do not have stuttered sound.

Any ideas?
