[mythtv-users] Playback stuttering with 0.3.x ivtv drivers

I was just about to write a mail about this ;-) I'm getting similar
issues, using 0.3.4o. It's been doing this for a while, but I don't
think it's *always* done it. I started using the ivtv drivers around
0.3.2q I believe, when I bought my pvr150.

One thing I have noticed though, is that this occurs only after I
change channel in myth, but not as soon as I start LiveTV. If I just
start LiveTV and stay on the channel which it starts on, there are no
prebuffering pauses. Is this the same for you?

Much as this probably isn't all that helpful, I think this behaviour
*may* have started when I upgraded to 0.18. I'm running FC3 and using
atrpms myth packages.
