I should have now all new drivers for everything installed.
I have tv-server and client in same HW.
Timeshift have own directories for each card
First when I installed the system originally 1.0.0 with some older drivers, HD channel was ok except some green pixeling quite often.
Normal channels was jerking every 5-10 minutes or even more often and recording on Paychannels was stopping always after 20-30min of recording. Paychanels also jammed randomly while watching them.

With new drivers and 1.0.1 verison HD channel is full of green pixeling and slows down the system so much that i have hard to get channel to changed.
Paychannel recordings work mostly now, but when I watch pay channel it still jams randomly and i have to change channel and go back to get it work again. Sound usually continues when screen jams.
In timeshifting it does this jamm also everytime and then i miss the part of the film when i have to change channel to get it work again.
Normal channels are jamming very rarely but all channels have short jittering time to time.

New feature has occured resently and no idea what might bring it up, in every channel some times when i change channel, picture stops immediately and sound goes on, after a while (1min) it starts to play and i am in timeshiftmode 15sec to 1min. Very strange and that was happening never before. I have played with drivers and codecs to try to get system working better so some of my changes might caused this behaviour.

I have googled hours and days to find out some help, but with no luck, so I hope someone could help me with these problems that pervents me to "throw" my old topfield away.

Installing Fresh Install of 1.0.2 version fixed almost my HD channel problem exept some pixeling time to time.
Still the biggest problem I have with paychannels, they hangup always after 30-60mins. Recorings fails usually too.
Normal channels are recording ok and doesent hangup, only some jittering and sound doesent start always with the picture until i change channels twice.

Here are logs when paychannel hungup

Allow EPG idle was disabled to make sure it doesent cause this.

I have looked at your log files, and the "TsWriter.log" file shows continuity errors, which (I think) is pixelation by another name. But you knew that already.
