I'm not a developer. I can do a little with code already written, but writing
my own or solving the deep problems is beyond me. Maybe someday...
Regarding the problem, I've seen enough other posts with the same or
similar issues to tell me it's not just me or my network. I'll keep trying
0.19+ again every few months, and hopefully someday it will be fixed.
As for me trying to submit bugs, it gets a bit discouraging when you
try and you're just told something like "It still works, doesn't it? Just
deal with the 15 second delay if you insist on watching Live TV."
