More info (cvs from a few minutes ago):
About 50% of the time that I begin watching live tv, it begins showing
video and after about 5 seconds of jerky playback and out-of-sync audio,
I suddenly hear an awful hissing/scratching noise (loud!) as if someone
did cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp. The frontend says repeatedly "Audio
buffer overflow, audio data lost!"
If I escape and go back to live tv, it's often fine, although audio
might be out of sync for 10 seconds or so, and then it syncs up. I
expect this is related to my original problem.
Speaking of the original problem, I had reported that I hit pause and
then change the channel to cause the hang. Pause is a red herring.
Just changing the channel is enough to cause the problem to occur.
I reverted back to 0.8 and all of these problems don't appear.
