[mythtv] [MASSIVE PATCH] BIG DVB PATCH V3.5 Released

Just so you have another point of reference...
I get stuttering on the HDTV video too. I haven't had any success with AC3
yet, but I haven't tried very hard. So my testing is based on Seven HD,
which has the MPEG stream too. And yes, it is a lower bitrate than Nine or
Ten, but they crap out on me at the moment because of the AC3.
It seems to stutter (~50% of the time) if I *change* to an HD channel. If I
start on the HD channel, it works fine. If I record HD and start watching
the recording straight away, it works fine too.
I thought about pausing the stream for a short while to see if the stutter
would go away, but that doesn't work. So what is it about a channel change?
I'm having a look at Mark Anderson's patch now to see what makes it tick.
Should I be able to get this working with software AC3 decoding?
Other than that, the 3.5 patch works really well.

Strange thing is, sometimes i get that, sometimes I don't. I'm still not
sure why though... Stuttering is not very obvious, could be my system
setup, will investigate more later. for HDTV channels, sometimes I gets
video stutters, and sometimes I don't.. I have no idea why....

I always checked out the latest version, "cvs -z3 -q -d
:pserver:mythtv at cvs.mythtv.org:/var/lib/mythcvs co mythtv", the patches
almost always applies cleanly.

no audio .. I recorded a few programs and it all went fine, until when I
tried to watch "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" on channel 10, there's
video but no audio. Will test more tonight.
