Another me too here,

Livetv stopped working for me when streaming it from my backend to my
frontend after upgrading to 0.26
2 pvr-150 in my backend.

I double checked to see if my db cleanup scripts were still doing
their jobs. (the ones that came with mythtv), and if there was network
congestion or anything other network related mess.
Alas none of the above.

I've tried mounting the livetv folder on the client (in the same
location as the server) to see if that helps. (writeable for the
backend readable for the frontend)
Alas no help, still no live tv.

I've got plenty cpu and mem in the backend (8-core 3ghz fx8120 with
16Gb) , the harddrive is average in performance.

For the front end I used my main machine for testing with the same
proc and ram, which has a fat videocard (gtx670) , so that should not
be a problem either.

They are both wired together via a 1gb ethernet switch.
So I doubt it's a hardware performance thingy.
I think the capture cards are ok as well since I can watch recorded shows.

It's only an issue with live-tv.

I've downgraded back to 0.25-2 and am happely watching livetv again.

I hope this get fixed soon.
