I've put a section of playback log at


Section of log during playback of recording from DVB-T2 UK itv HD using 
MediaCodec; ccommand line 'adb logcat mfe:D'

All the recordings from UK HD DVB-T2 channels that I have tried show a 
similar pattern, a stream of log output rapidly filling the screen, if 
they haven't already failed.

'Dropping frame' is reported at intervals of around 40 ms.  Maybe it's 
normal?  But MDP has errors.

It looks as if this file has been processed by mythTScut, which removes 
all but one video and one audio stream, but all playable files give logs 
like this.
