    After many months/years of tweaking I found a possible fix for certain live TV stutter problems.
    I use speedfan to monitor temperatures which control the fan speeds to keep the system as quiet as possible.
    In this process, S.M.A.R.T requests are made to monitor disk temperatures.
    These SMART requests seem to have a high demand on the HDD/SDD interface which in my case freeze the TV stream for a fraction of a second. After this, sometimes audio is out of sync.
    When disabling the disk temperature SMART requests (because they didn't change that much anyway) the freezes were gone.

    I found out because the freezes were not random. I used procmon to see the disk access.

    I just wanted to let you and google know.
