A few "30 second jump"s forward is pretty consistant in causing the problem.
I very rarely watch live tv. This is with recordings.
Yes, I am using AC3 passthrough, and audio timebase.
This problem is *so* consistant for me, that I have actually been
surprised that no one else has complained about it. I am currently
running the 23Jul04 CVS, since it does not have the problem, but worry
about getting "left behind" :'(
One thing I have not tried, is compiling up the 24Jul04 CVS with OpenGL
disabled. I will give that a try later on.
