I totally disagree and I do not see this as a problem.
> Ladies & Gentlemen:
> I have recently joined the ranks of individuals with working MythTV
> After actually using it I realized that it takes 2-3 seconds of garbled

> I have since spent some time reading message boards, FAQ's and

> majority of MythTV users don't even notice because they do scheduling &
> recording as opposed to watching LiveTV.
> I know everyone has their own ideas regarding the definition of a PVR
> and a DVR and correct me if I am wrong but the use case for a PVR would

> User happily watching TV.
> User is distracted by an event in his/her living space(phone ringing,
> soup boiling over etc.)
> User pauses TV
> User deals with distraction
> User un-pauses TV
> User subsequently fast-forwards through the commercials.
> Where I am going with this is that in imitating the functionality of a
> TIVO, Freevo will not do it at all and MythTV does it but the channel
> changing problem really showcases how MythTV is not there yet.
> Now, I would love to help fix the problem as long as everyone can agree
