Comment(by anonymous):

 Neither one of these patches fixes the issue.

 I added some debugging code and found that while StopDummyVideo() gets
 called, we never get into the while() loop that calls pthread_join()
 This is because of this:
 Index: dvbrecorder.cpp
 --- libs/libmythtv/dvbrecorder.cpp     (revision 13823)
 +++ libs/libmythtv/dvbrecorder.cpp     (working copy)

      if (StreamID::IsVideo(info->streamType))
 -        _stop_dummy = true;
 +        StopDummyVideo();

      if (StreamID::IsAudio(info->streamType))

 Which when added (without any of your patches applied) fixes the problem.
