Well, the subject line says it all. About 1 in 5 times, I have to wait 16
seconds before the menu appears after switching off live TV (see below how I
know this number so accurately). On rare occasions, Mythfrontend doesn't
recover at all.
This is what causes it (from the frontend log):
RingBuf(/media/mythtv/intrepid/1007_20081230140055.mpg) Error: Waited 16
seconds for data, aborting.
There is nothing in the backend log at the same time that indicates an
error, but I do not know how to turn on verbose logging there.
The error was described a long time ago, and supposedly fixed (
http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg05500.html) but I
can't find recent reports of it.
