hello all,
I have strange problem here. If I watch TV in a window on the right of menu in myTV plugin the picture stops and goes every few seconds. It is choppy. But in fullscreen, or while watching recorded show everything is fine. Interesting thing is that if I turn timeshift on, than plaing in a window is as smooth as in fulscreen. Any ideas?

    Hi, RC1 has this bug, which causes a high CPU load with TS off. Judging by your hardware (which is rather underpowered) the playback probably suffers more from this bug while not in fullscreen.

    BTW, that bug is marked as resolved, so it's probably fixed in current CVS. So, if you're brave, you could try installing a CVS snapshot. The other option is to wait a bit for RC2 to be released.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you, it could be that. Actualy, i tried some CVS updates in the past, but it always had some problems, tipicaly there was no picture from tv card at all. So I'll wait for RC2.
    About my hardware it is underpowerd a lot, I know, but it has one big advantage since it serves me only for htpc purposes - it's fanless :). However I will upgrade it acording to MP reqs in near future.
    Thank you
