Thank you both for the patch, but I was kinda hoping not to have to build
and maintain custom versions of anything anymore. For now I'll just assign a
different button on the remote for this, and see if we can get used to it.
A more serious issue is that playback now isn't as smooth as it was before.
Video halts for a fraction of second, though CPU usage never peaks and
neither the frontend nor the backend log anything when it happens. My video
card isn't VDPAU capable, but you'd think an Athlon 64 X2 4400+ should be
able to handle ATSC video without problems.
