Thanks for this report. The device busy feedback should only be temporary. If it lasts a long time we definitely want to pursue it as a bug.
Some additional information could help:
If the input is coming from a stream instead of a file, one way you might be able to reproduce is by saving the bits to file before sending to decode. If you see the endless device busy loop you could then try transcoding the file contents from before the hang. The very best case would be to narrow down to a short mpeg2 file which could replicate the behavior with one of the samples or tutorials.

Ok I will write the bitstream to file and send the file to you.
I have recorded video stream. and checked with sample programs, all of them crashes with segfault, but ffplay, or some other video player applications can play it.
here is attached video bitstream file
