I use a Pinnacle USB-Receiver (PCTV Sat HDTV Pro). The module is 

I use the repository from Igor Liplianin (actual hg release). The module 
compiles and loads fine. The scanning with scan-s2 and zapping with 
szap-s2 also wirk fine.
But when I record TV from the USB-device with "cat 
/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > (filename)" I got the TV-Stream of the actual 
tv-station (zapped with "szap-s2 -r SAT.1" for example).
This recorded video has artefacts, even missed frames.

Anyone else having this problem? I remember that on multiproto there was 
a similar problem with the pctv452e until Dominik Kuhlen patched 
somthing since then the video was OK. Is it possible that the same 
"error" is in the S2API-driver?
