#7505: DVB-T prebuffering pause but corrects itself if I rewind
 Reporter:  yianniv       |       Owner:  janne  
     Type:  defect        |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor         |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  MythTV - DVB  |     Version:  head   
 Severity:  medium        |     Mlocked:  0      
 I have this problem with the only DVB-T card I have, a Lifeview Trio, and
 only on these DVB-T channels, no problem on DVB-S (other card) or analogue
 (other card). When I start live tv the picture is smooth for 4-5 seconds,
 then it starts freezing for 1/3", and the freezing is repeated every 3-5
 seconds. No artefacts, though, just freezing. If I rewind the video, I can
 watch it with no problem for some time until it starts to freeze again, at
 which point I rewind it again to correct it. (I can study it, but not
 enjoy it!)

 It is not the signal quality because the video is smooth if I later watch
 it in Recordings.

 I can barely notice any problem using kaffeine.

 Mythtv behaves the same on all 3 frontends (2 with VDPAU, one without -
 Intel) and I've been this symptom for at least 4 weeks now and several
 updates - I keep following trunk closely.
