Johh, which kernel, V4L drivers and HD-PVR versions are you using?  I
haven't kept exact numbers, but I suspect I'm averaging around 1.5 to
2.0 stop/restart cycles per hour.  It used to only be a minor nuisance,
but with the playback handling getting worse as I described in an
earlier message, it's become a major annoyance.
