No idea.  I get similar problems trying to do livetv on master.  I've
reported them here (and filed a bug, iirc) but I have not gone back and
tested again since doing so.

But, FWIW, I've pretty much given up on the idea of livetv with mythtv.
 My experience is that it fails to work more times that it works and is
just a painful experience in terms of channel changing lag and whatnot,
and given that the livetv experience is usually about channel surfing,
it's a non-starter.
