There is a problem when viewing a channel and then the program ends and a new one starts - mythtv would then rebuffer, but mythfrontend hangs every time it would have to rebuffer(the ringbuffer I think). I have no problem switching channels. It is only when watching a program ending(it is always reproduceable here). It could be though that it also happened in the middle of a program(I am not sure)
Did this happen for you in previous version of mythtv?
No I didn't have this problem with the earlier subversion package in gentoo (mythtv-0.21_pre13285.ebuild) and the mythtv-0.20 versions have also worked without problems
Right now I am running a newer subversion revision 14025. This also have that problem.
Ok. I tried with a subversion release from yesterday. I also have the problem with that. It could be it actually is a ivtv problem. I saw something about a fix where it would hang when changing channels..I can change channels without problems. I only experience the hang when mythtv is rebuffering between programs
Ohh..I have just found out some new info. I was lazy and didn't restart my frontend...so after it hung I didn't restart it...and about 10 minutes after the hung it started to play live-tv again
There are several tickets about this issue upstream. A better place for this discussion is upstream since the 0.21 series of ebuilds are merely just random trunk snapshots and are provided as a convenience to Gentoo users and are not officially maintained.
ok. I was just about to suggest that I asked around on myth-users and file a bug upstream
DO you know of a bug id upstream?
Can't tell you a ticket number off the top of my head, but it was a common thing discussed by MythTV developers on IRC.
This is what happens when you go with trunk, things can break.
Either way, 13775 is no longer in the tree and has been replaced with much newer ebuilds.
