Just to let other OSXers out there know, the buffer mentioned in this
ticked does seem to be the source of the crashes.

If people are after a quick fix this is what I did:

1. Run the packager script to generate the MythFrontend.app and the
src folder link
2. rm -rf MythFrontend.app
3. vi src/mythtv/libs/libmythtv/decoderbase.h


const int kDecoderProbeBufferSize = 1024 * 1024;


const int kDecoderProbeBufferSize = 64 * 1024;
4. rerun the osx-packager script to regenerate the frontend with your
changes. Don't worry if if SVN updates, youre changes will still

If you're not comfortable with vi, just use 'open' instead of 'vi' in
step 3, this'll launch it in XCode.

Hope that helps others until this is sorted by people more experienced. :)
