After upgrading from to RC 0.2.0, TV has stopped working properly. I get really serious picture and sound stuttering problems. Basically, signal comes and go for 1 second every 2 seconds. This goes on forever making it tottaly unusable. :x

I have tried all the suggestions seen so far in the forum (DMA mode for HD, setting MP to work with single processor, codecs, latest CVS etc.) I even tried installing a more powerful graphics card (NVIDIA 6200) just to make sure it was not a HW issue. No change. :?

Unfortunatelly I cannot send you any error report as the program does not throw any error but let me know if I can send any additional info you need.

So far, the only solution has been to downgrade to so I am praying the all mighty programmers can start finding the culprit amongst any of the fundamental changes have been made to the way the TV tuner functionality works in RC2.

As always, thank you so much for your help and to everyone who collaborates for this great application.
