Default vlc oddities


I am using vlc (beside other things) to watch dvb-t using
this hardware (according lspci)
01:06.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 11)
01:06.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11)

. I call vlc like
vlc channels.conf

When changing channels with "n" and "p" there are positions in the
range of channels, where vlc gets stuck. Example

Start Key results in
with chn. channel no.:
1 n 2 (video ok,vlc running ok)
2 n 3 (video ok,vlc running ok)
3 n 3 (image freezes,vlc stucks)
n 5 (video ok,vlc running ok)
5 p 4 (video ok,vlc running ok)
4 n 5 (video ok,vlc running ok)
5 n 6 (video ok,vlc running ok)
6 n (image freezes,vlc stucks)
n (image freezes,vlc stucks)
8 p 7 (video ok,vlc running ok)
7 p 6 (video ok,vlc running ok)

I didnt find any logical link between the channel number, the
corresponding entry in channels.conf and whether the channel is
directly selectable while stepping with n or only selectable
via "np" forward-backward stepping.

With vlc-1.0.0 I didnt have this problems, after that all
versions of vlc shows this unwanted behaviour.
Unfortunately vlc-1.0.0 didn't compile anymore beside other
reasons to not to install it.

Does anyone else have this experienced and - may be - knows
a solution ?

Have a nice weekend!
Best regards,
