Hi Everyone,

After a few weeks trying and reading this list I still have not solved my 
problem: MythTV hangs on all channelchanges.

Xawtv works like a dream, and the source for channelswitching itself is 
functionally equal in both xawtv and mythtv.

At the moment I am busy building a system from scratch and source, starting 
with the CRUX distribution, to avoid having everything and the kitchensink 
hanging around as with the big distributions. At least my frequent reboots 
will be quicker this way :-)

Any pointers for the hanging problem? I stopped developing for MythTV as 
the rebooting was getting boring and I just waited for new releases of the 
BTTV or ALSA driver to solve my problem (quite sure my problem lies in that 
direction). And without channelswitching: the main menu, the EPG (without 
selecting a channel) and timeshifting on a the channel active when mythTV 
was started is about all you can do...
