Comment (by danielk):

 It appears the RingBuffer/NVP has problems with short files.

 I'm also seeing a similar problem when trying to address #664.

 When you have a short (30 frames or so) file in the livetv buffer, the NVP
 sometimes falls into prebuffering pause. It never checks whether it should
 be switching buffers. I guess it is blocking the check somehow? It
 eventually it gives up and you return to the main menu.

 This may be related to another apperent bug where the player gets stuck in
 a prebuffering pause at the end of scheduled recordings. It eventually it
 gives up and you return to the main menu. Of course it shouldn't be
 entering prebuffering pause at all in this case, but should just exit
 playback normally.
