"Best" sampling rate?

I was wondering if certain sampling rates were better than others for
the RTL2832 dongles? I'm finding that if the sampling rate is below
1.1MSPS, I get few samples being dropped (but they still get dropped).
Above this rate, randomly, I get a multiple of 94 samples being

Are there certain sampling frequencies that are sweet-spots for the
RTL2832 that produce very stable performance? Perhaps frequencies that
are a fraction of DVB sampling frequencies?
