Watching live tv in My Television eats memory until Mediaportal crashes due to out of virtual memory.

When I first enter My Television Mediaportal uses around 100MB memory, and as long as I have TV On Mediaportal's memory usage increases with about 100KB per second for channels using the FloppyDTV and 5KB per second for channels using the PVR150.

I've tried with different Video Codecs (NVIDIA Video Decoder, DScalar Mpeg2 Video Decoder, CyberLink Video/SP Decode) but all give the same result. I've also tried different Audio Codecs (ffdshow Audio Decoder, DScalar Audio Decoder, CyberLink Audio Decoder) but no differance.

Watching Recorded TV, Movies, playing Music all shows stable memory usage.
