I have the same problem too. My current showtime version is 4.7.55.g3a6af on PS3
Here is a log. At the bottom we can see the channel France Eng. Video works (MPEG2 stream)
Then Last is NHK World HD. No video. codec h264 level 42.
It would be nice to know if any other showtime versions will be a fix for this.

This problem only occur for me on ps3 builds of Showtime.
It does not happen on recent OS X builds (for me).
And whyz found ok on OS X build too. So I'm not sure the reasony Aleksandr has reported this bug on OS X platform. But it is definitely occurring on ps3. (any version of ps3 showtime).

on ps3 i have deleted all settings, deleted all cache folder, tried 3 different showtime version, problem always occurs
on ps3, can see no errors in log file. And "video bitrate" counter is updating constantly
just there is no video is output, screen remains black

One more thing - the same H264 .TS stream can be recorded in TVH Headend as a regular file. And accessed for example over SAMBA share. When played back that way, the video displays fine. So it must be some circumstance specific to live HTSP streaming!
When I look in backends/htsp/htsp.c there is almost no code in there which is specific to be only about H264. So I'm at a complete loss myself, unless there is something extra needed, which is currently missing for H264 but has been included for MPEG2 stream.
It's worth noting also the source I tested was a 1080p H264 TS Stream, over Gigabit LAN. Many thanks.
