[mythtv] Windows Status?

There's no such thing as just "windows issue", there's always a reason. Most likely, there's some sort of a race condition which only happens when it's running under debugger (and therefore, slower). GDB for Win32 sucks. Try something else, like OllyDbg. Unfortunately, it's unable to use debug symbols generated by gcc, but you might be able to figure out using dll import names.

The GDB commands file method should already be implemented and has
worked for me in the past.
There are two seperate files called mythbackend.cmd en mythfrontend.cmd
in the bin folder that should launch backend and frontend, respectively,
with a GDB backtrace.
Have you tried them already?
I just tried it and I was able to get it to work. I had to add C:\MSys\1.0\bin to the path variable. The odd thing is that when I run it in gdb and try to watch a video, it always crashes. However, if I run the frontend without gdb I can watch previously recorded shows. Ever experience that? I am attaching the backtrace but it looks like it is a windows issue maybe?
I am going to sync my backend and the windows frontend to the same revision and follow Nigel's suggestions on how to debug the LiveTV problems and the FilterManager.
