Ah, that might explain. I assume that the ivtv overflow messages are
also triggered by this.

On the other hand, I also just reverted libs/libmythtv/ivtvdecoder.cpp
to a revision just before the LiveTV changes (I used
and I now succeeded to do two planned recordings that were started while
watching LiveTV. The frontend didn't go to the recording automatically
(it goes back to menu), but at least the recording itself goes well and
can be watched when navigating to it.

Not sure it is related, but these times I didn't see the 'scheduler:
Last message repeated 1 times' (see my previous e-mail) after the
'scheduler: Started recording' message:
