I get stuttering going directly to LiveTV.
I get stuttering when not going to LiveTV and schedule a recording.
And the stuttering shows up if i play that recording on another computer.

So i would think that the problem occurs when MythTV saves the mpeg2 stream 
to disc.

I guess it is ok.

Don't really know which version i'm using. But i only use about 45% of the 
CPU when wathing LiveTV.
Så there is plenty of power left.

I have the stuttering with about 15 seconds between them. You can see it in 
the log in my first post.

This is a big problem for me. If someone with the knowledge of the code of 
MythTv needs
more information i will do whatever i can to help. But perhaps not enough 
people have this
problem to make it worth the time to find the bug?
