I don't see how that patch will help anything either. You've moved
the Reset call that stops the SIParser to after tuning is complete
which shouldn't help - if anything it will makes things worse.
The problem (assuming you have the same problem as me) is picking up
the PMT from the old multiplex - do you have a siparser log of it
going wrong? Because that should prove whether it is getting the PMT
from the old multiplex.
Given that you need to make sure that tuning is complete before
restarting the SIParser, but the code already seems to do that
assuming that the lock detection is correct. My theory was that
the lock detection was broken which is what my patch attempted
I've been running with my patch for two weeks now and haven't lost

They need to be channels on different multiplexes as well so the
card has to retune to a new frequency.
