tried it for 5mins without pausing; no difference... it continues to stutter.
in playback data, the FRAMES DECODED/FREE shows figures like 8/17 when stuttering occurs. Pausing liveTV for a few seconds puts it to a 20/2 figure and stuttering disappears, so assuming the 'frames free' counter can be relied upon, this might be something to watch to provide a suitable fix?
another option would be to watch the available buffer, to ensure it's above (for example) 25% filled?
fwiw, i'm experiencing this on a 2820 NUC that uses VAAPI
