[mythtv-users] 0.21: Issue with freezing LiveTV

I have quite annoying issue with freezing LiveTV.
When freeze occurs I can bring up OSD and OSD shows progress of LiveTV
buffering time and playback time is constant. Bahaviour is infact
exactly the same like paused LiveTV. Pressing pause/play changes
nothing. Solution is only quit LiveTV and enter again. Also I have
impression that freeze moment is corelared with programm change.
I was tested various SVN versions counting that maybe it is bug and
maybe issue is resolved. Unfortunately issues is still present.
Now I'm on 0.21-stable SVN 17166.
As problem is quite annoying for family - do somebody have idea how to
minimize this effect.
-Knoppmyth r5f27 upgraded to 0.21 via src compile
-BE is 0.21-fixes SVN 17190, 3xPVR250
-FE is MiniMyth 0.21-fixes SVN 17166.
Thx for advance

I have been fighting with this problem as long as I have been dealing
Never found a good answer.
With 0.20 I saw freezing very often, and with every channel.
Now, after moving to .21 svn, problem seems to partially gone away. Some
time ago (with older svn revision) I got freezing with two specific
channels, and quite seldomly. But it allways happened during program change.
Now, with latest upgrade, I have not faced problem anymore. But I don't
use those two channels very often, so maybe problem is still there
But, biggest help was enabling "extra audio buffering" in setup -> tv
settings -> playback.
Without that, I still get freezing very often, and with any channel. So,
I think bottomline of this issue is related to audio buffer became empty
in program change.
