 Problem is occurring every time i want to watch tv. I'm oblige to restart
 mythbackend as many times as it would don't work. Since it will worked, i
 can watch some channels and it will block again.

 Notice when mythtv doesn't work i can't see any log message in my
 mythbackend.log (playback,record)

 Since i have say that's the rtsp patch's is faulty, i'm trying to resolve
 this with Michael Guntsche who develop rtsp patch's for linux. In fact the
 patch isn't problem's cause because i have vlc to continue to work when
 mythtv's fail. Can you tell me what log can help us to solve this and if i
 have to open ticket. (in attachment my mails with Michael Guntsche)

 Hello Michael,

 In fact, after many test with debug activated. I know now that's my mythtv
 who have problem. I have try using playlist (see mail attechment) with vlc
 and its work properly. I'm oblige to reinitialize some times my
 mythbackend (program who record channel for time shifting) to have it
 working since vlc work anyway.

 This day i'm sure it's not rtsp's patch who is faulty. I would try to see
 this problem with mythtv support.

 Thanks a lot for your works, i'm sorry you lost your time.
