[mythtv-users] Stuttering with Today's CVS?

Hey gang, I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing this problem. I updated my mythboxes to CVS as of early afternoon today. I have a seperate backend/frontend setup and the frontend is a EPIA M10000 Nemehiah. I'm NOT currently using the EPIA's hardware decoding. Now....I go to watch TV and everything seems perfectly normal. According to TOP, mythfrontend is using about 55%-60% of the cpu and playback is skip free, perfect. But then I change a channel and immediately the skipping starts. Looking at TOP again, mythfrontend is now using 99%+ of the cpu, and the frontend log is spewing Prebuffering Pauses every couple of seconds.
I've never had this problem before. It obviously seems to be related to the update today. My backend machine is running a PVR250, with IVTV from about a month ago....so I guess that could also be my problem. I'm going to go ahead and update IVTV now, but if anyone has seen this and can shed some light, I'd appreciate it.
