Why not focus your efforts into addressing the problem you are seeing
instead of forking and working around? I'm sure your efforts would then
benefit the community at large instead of leaving it behind. If you
have the wherewithall to fork the code, it seems you would have the
skills to dive into the code and find out where the problem is coming
from. A few well placed timing debug statements in the LiveTV code
should give you a clear idea of where the delays are coming from and
then focus your efforts on that. And if it only happens with remote
tuners, you should also look at any network settings (NFS, samba, CIFS
or streaming) to see if there is optimizations there. I know alot of
people have found various tweaks on the list for each of those that
There is alot you can do to provide great feedback to the product here
if you are willing.
