Count me in on this one too. The live tv hangs at every show boundary. The
screen locks up, and the logs show that it has gone on to start
watching/recording the next show however display never changes. I can exit
back to main menu and then re-enter fine. No obvious issues in myth
logs..but I too am using an Nvidia graphics card. I have not yet verified
if the issue exists on my slave backend (non-nvidia) but I soon will.
