There have been a *lot* of DVB updates in 0.16 along with many general
updates too. Might be worth giving this a try.

see http://www.mythtv.org and http://www.mythtv.info for more details

> Hi,
>
> I have a mythtv 0.15.1 system with the Nebula DVB card.
> The OS is RH9.0 but with a 2.6.8.1 kernel. I'm using the on-board sound
> system
> based on the Crystal Media CMI8738
>
> I have some issues with the live TV side of things and wondered if it was
> just
> me. The rest of MythTV works really well, just the DVB TV side of things.
>
> Watching TV with the Nebula card isn't a good experience. Problems include
>
> 1) Slow channel changes 2-3 seconds. My Panasonic DVB settop box is fairly
> instant.
> 2) Stuttering audio. Some channels, randonmly as far as I can tell, give
> poor
> audio and then when you change a channel and move back are fine.
> 3) It doesn't seem to handle any of the DVB radio stations properly with a
> different video pid. e.g. I've tuned Radio 7 with a different PID but the
> audio
> is constantly stuttering.
>
> Any help, guidance, updates welcomed. Am I the only one having these
> niggling
> but annoying issues.

> Thanks,
