[mythtv-users] Stuttering audio on live TV with SVN

I just checked --- I'm also running ivtv 0.4.0.  I've been tracking svn for
some time now.  At some point I also had stuttering on live tv and very high
cpu load, but upgrading my ivtv to 0.4.0 fixed the problem.  Unfortunately,
you're already running that version, so that isn't the problem...

Still, maybe this is worth mentioning: When I had the same problem, before I
upgraded to ivtv 0.4.0, I noticed that syslogd and klogd were consuming all
the cpu.  This made recordings somewhat unreliable and live tv hard to
watch.  I could kill the klogd process and things would run better, but
things were still unreliable overall.

Anyway, it sounds like your problem is a different one.  I am not on the
very latest svn right now (I up to 8038), so maybe this is something very
