I've been keeping up with mythtv svn's recently and seem to be getting 
errors when switching to livetv. I know the devs don't actually watch 
livetv but is anyone else facing these errors ? Essentially when 
switching to livetv, it hangs with the following error - no 
remote/keyboard input is accepted any longer and the screen is black 
although i can see the recording file growing constantly.. I have to 
manually log in and kill the frontend and restart (sometimes several 
times to get past this and actually watch livetv)
