The closest problem I have (using SVN from a couple months ago) is a
playback issue where if my tuners stop recording simultaneously (a
PVR-250 and a Matrox Marvel G400), while I'm watching a third
recording, the recording I'm watching will begin to slow down and
stutter badly (audio and video).  I need to exit and re-watch the
recording then it works fine.

So, I guess to answer your question directly, no, I haven't seen your
problem. :(
