I'm experiencing major instability - something changed in the last week
of CVS. About 70% of the time when switching channels (on entering live
tv) either sound/video sync will be messed up and they frontend is
likely to crash as well. When it works, it perfect, however.

Sound similar?

The latest CVS version seems to misbehave when playing some recordings.
This is 
something which appeared some time this week in the CVS.

When I play the recording it runs at about one or two frames per second,
after maybe 5 seconds freezes as the audio has gone too far ahead. This
on about 50% of recordings (I cant see any pattern as to which programs
affected and which are not). On one recording the playback is fine until
i fast 
forward or rewind, then it starts freezing again. Rewinding back to the
point, which played fine before, does not help.

These are DVB recordings but the problem is at the playback end as they
just fine with v0.15.1. They are correct on the preview window in the
version too.

I anyone else experiencing these issues?
