I use FFmpeg to transcode DVB-ASIoverIP. (I also use Enensys converters

You may want to check your Gigacaster settings so that it is not using 
FEC. (Although probably not mandatory, in general I have also had good 
luck using UDP rather than RTP)

If neither of the above is not the cause, I have always had an easier 
time trouble shooting by receiving the packets with other tools such as 
a TS analyzer, VLC, ffplay, etc...

Only after using such tools to confirm that the receiving TS packets are 
healthy, I would then move on to working with FFmpeg.

I hope this helps.
