When I updated to version 1.2.0 Alpha the channel switching get very slow when I watch live TV. It takes about 30-40 seconds to switch channel. When I use version 1.1.0 it takes about 10 second.

try to change from "pause" to "stop" on your tv-card. Its a new config for each card in the tv-server config.

It seems to help a lot by reinstall the mdapi filter. Now it takes about 7 - 10 seconds to switch channel.
