SciDoctor: i just tested as you descriebed: MP in window-mode, process-explorer and timeshift-folder visible. When the stuttering appears, the new timeshift-file is created. (Every 5 Mnutes, only video stuttering, short pause of 0.5 - 1 sec, audio was ok and not pausing) But there was no thread or process causing any high peak, MP was always between 8.5 and 18 %, tv-server between 0.77 and 4%, other threads 0.8 - 9%.

I'm just wondering whether it makes a difference between window- and fullscreen-mode. I might have noticed, that the stuttering was not so hard in window-mode... can this be or am i wrong? I didn't had the time to confirm this surely...

Today i let the SAT-Antenna checked and calibrated, Signal-level is 98-99%, signal-quality is 44-55%, and the stuttering still exists.

    Hi seco,

    I have configured a ramdisk for timeshift buffer recently, but since I have various problems right now, I can't check if it solves the problem. I'm even not on latest release of MP...
