    I've run into some issue with the pause and restart function for TV/Video:

    1. Start MP and switch to fullscreen TV (or Video)
    2. Press Pause - movie stops
    3. Press pause again - movie restarts
    4. Repeat 2 and 3 a couple of times:
    Restart is no longer possible. Instead picture is frozen. Occasionally picture will restart after a few seconds, then sound is only heard after some additional time. Advancing with buffer by a few seconds sometimes helps, however, it frequently puts you at the beginning of the timeshift buffer. Stop works in all cases, putting you back to the home screen and TV/Movie can be restarted.

    The issue was not there under MP 1.0 and its recent SVNs​

    I've had the same while ffw or skipping the video, but in all previous versions as well.
    I installed another codec pack. That helps alot but didn't really solve the prob reliably.
