I have very long channel change time on the Floppy DTV S2 card, even with the new firmware. A few seconds after channel change, the channel that I am watching starts playing the same part that i was watching just a few sec. ago before it changes channel.

Em I the only one with this problem?

I have the same problem.
Under settings there is an option "prevent seek during skipping". By checking this option for me the problem disapeared.

    The new TSReader works moutch better. If it only whould work with HD channels it would be greate..
    It should already work with HD channels. Could you upload a small sample (50MB) to the FTP?
