I have checked hardware requisites for mythtv and I thought my hardware 
would be ok, but I am getting a lot of "NVP: prebuffering pause" and 
when it happens image gets freeze when watching live tv.

I have the following hardware:
* Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processor         1.20GHz
* 256 Mb Ram
* Prolink PlayTV USB 2.0

* Debian etch
* Ext3 for system partition
* XFS for video partition
* mythtv 0.20-svn20070223-0.0
* kernel 2.6.18.

I have already tried several optimizations howtos, but I could't stop 
getting this message.

* Running mythfrontend with Elevated Privileges
* Maximizing Hard Drive Throughput
* Using XFS for File System

Whatelse could I do to troubleshoot this problem?
