I have experienced this a number of times recently since moving to RC2.

I select channel X and watch for a few seconds and then change channel to Y. MP changes channel and then plays the timebuffer from the beginning - repeating channel X until the change point to channel Y which it then plays from the record point - not the live point. Essentially I am now watching channel Y delayed by the time I watched channel X. Changing channel again repeats the problem so slowly but surely I get a timeshift buffer with multiple channels. Fast forward sorts out lets me catch up.

Rob - thanks for the pointer but I don't see anything in the referenced thread that relates to the problem? Can you be more spcific

[I assume there is only one live buffer and that all live tv goes to it and the tv client is supposed to play from the live (end) position. What I appear to see is than on channel switch the tv client plays the live buffer from the beginning instead]
