This is a result of error EOVERFLOW.

I found mention of this in some very old documentation I have
but which doesn't appear to be present in the very limited
searching I've done on the existing source repositories.

I also can't find a particular pointer I read years back, which
led me to tweak the value of DVB_BUFFER_SIZE in dvb-core/dmxdev.h
so solve some problem I can't remember.

The documentation points to DMX_SET_BUFFER_SIZE.  Programs like
`szap' seem to set this to 64k.

Hope that gets you started in the right direction...
