#10869: LiveTV Playback stutters

 Since I updated from 0.24.x to 0.25, I am experiencing a strange problem
 with the LiveTV.

 When starting LiveTV, as well as when switching channels (no matter if
 same multiplex or not), it seems to depend on how fast (or slow) the tuner
 of my DVB-S card is (WinTV Nova-S-Plus) is.

 If it is fast, MythTV seems to "buffer" a few seconds of video before I
 actually see a picture. But if it is slow, the picture stutters.

 As a workaround, I found out, that when the picture stutters and I press
 the [i]-button, the remeaning seconds for the actual recording show 3 or
 If I press the PAUSE key and wait a few seconds to let it record some
 seconds, the playback works fine.

 What I also recognized is, that I no longer get a T when switching
 channels. Instead of TLMS, it only shows _LMS on all channels, but I still
 get a picture. No idea if that matters. But I've never figured out what
 those letters mean and I found no documentation on them.
