No, it happens approximately every 0.5 seconds, while the dvb card is
tuned to a transport with many programs which use each a different PMT

I shouldn't have any influence to the recording since the PIDs used to

are set/unset in this round robin manner. This speeds up changes on the
same multiplex since the backend has a cached PMT.
