If i play a recording on another computer it behaves the same way. The bad 
sound/picture jump is recorded too.

The cpu is on about 45% when i watch LiveTV, so it should be enough power to 
play it smoothly. And it has been
working before. I have used MythTV for about 1 year on the same computer 
and it has been working perfect.
But sinve LiveTV was so slow to change channels i have mostly been using it 
to record programs. But lately, due
to this problem, i can't use it for recording either. Don't reallay know 
when this problem started.

The log shows me nothing, but maybe i need to supply some debug switch to 
the sommand line to see information?
