[mythtv-users] Skip forward doesn't work correctly anymore

Hi all,
 I have been running on the CVS (now SVN) builds and recently noticed a 
problem. When I watch recorded shows and fast forward, the screen kind of 
gets messed up, the OSD comes up and the "total time" portion changes times 
(even though it is no longer recording) and then the video straightens 
itself out and its okay again. However, this takes several seconds. If I 
"jump" forward (15 minutes for me), it does the same thing, but it can take 
30 seconds or longer to come back.
 On my "Seeking" options screen in Setup, I have the following:
Fast Forward amount = 30
Rewind amount = 10
Smart Fast Forwarding is not selected
Sticky keys is not selected
Fast forward/rewind reposition amount = 100
Reverse direction in fast forward/rewind is unchecked
Seek to exact frame is checked (also tried with unchecked, but had the same 
Jump amount = 15
 I didn't have this problem when I was using 0.18, but also didn't have it 
up until the last few weeks (I update to CVS every 2 to 3 weeks). I also 
pretty regularly do a apt-get update / dist-upgrade. However, after the 
problem started, I used the cvs 'make uninstall' and reinstalled from Axel's 
RPMs. This had the same problem.
 Could this be something related to a different package (mplayer or 
 Anyone else seen this problem? Any thoughts would be appreciated as it 
makes skipping around in the recordings nearly useless.

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. --
