But Kaffeine is xine based. Did you try with other ex mplayer based or vlc?

I ported kplayer exactly for that reason - it works much better (in terms of
features) with my DVB-T stick. Before DVB it was the only one doing analog
channels properly and with the appropriate config file DVB is a charm.
However since we moved out of the city, we don't have good signal. Never
mind, I suggest trying another player and if it is not a kernel/driver
issue you will enjoy it.
