[mythtv-users] Fwd: Re: Cache/buffer overflow?

When using /dev/video4 (displaying TV on the computer monitor) I 
don't appear to experience any problems.

It's only when I have the video pointed at /dev/video16  (which is 
tv-out on the PVR 350). I have the TV out for the PVR 350 configured 
in MythFrontend under Playback.

As a separate but possible related issue, when I have TV-Out enabled, 
in addition to eventually the tv slowing down and stopping, the 
remote doesn't work quite right (the mute button for example works 
when not using the PVR 350 tv out, but doesn't when using the PVR 350 TV Out)
