This message just means that the frame hasn't been delivered at the 
expected time. It's usually caused either by bad signal, when bttv 
cannot digitize the frame, or when the user specifies a wrong norm (pal 
vs. ntsc), or eventually by CPU overload.

I guess your case is the first one. If you get this message just 
ocassionally (say, up to ten times per hour or so), there's not much to 
worry about.
