Is this likely to cause additional latency during the pausing 
phase when channel changing takes place?  It used to be pretty 
bad (up to 800ms), but at the moment it seems to be quite 
reasonable, about 50-150ms (thanks to whoever fixed this!).  

I'm not sure where the delays occur, but one area 
I haven't investigated is whether the frontend has to consume 
all buffers before playback is completely paused and channel change can begin?

Probably a load of rubbish, if so sorry for the wasted bandwidth..
