[mythtv-users] Unusual Audio/Video lag on an AMD64 3000+

Almost all the time, changing channels works.... that's the thing that I
find really unusual. It records the regular streams which I can playback
with lag... Previously I could watch them lag-free (the videos that allow
you to fast forward/rewind live TV)
is there a default name for the logfiles? I currently only have access via
SSH (without X). I could do a search for the logs and see what they say.
BTW: I am running MythDora 4.0

This normally means you have a problem with your video source configuration.

I suppose this might also be related to a bad video source config.
What does the backend log show when you try and change channel?

Wherever you've told mythfrontend to put it :) Start mythfrontend with
the --logfile <file> option and tell it where to store the log.
