I'm getting the same problem with 0.20.2. I have a separate frontend
and backend, though, so it's definitely not capture card related. I can
watch a show for 45 minutes sometimes, and then it will all of a sudden
start stuttering. I initially only saw it happen with HD shows, and my
processor is only a 2.8GHz P4, so I thought 0.20.2 must just be slowing
things down a little tiny bit. But then it happened with a non-HD show
as well last night.
Restarting mythfrontend did NOT help with the stuttering, but letting it
sit for a couple minutes did. I do not have ntpd running on my frontend
- I have it run ntpdate during bootup, but that's it.
