Hi Lasse & Mike,
Just saw your responses this morning; thank you for the suggestions...
I hadn't posted back yet, but I've made some progress on this issue.
Here's what I did...
I downloaded the latest source from SVN (svn co
) and applied the patch from ticket #6583 to tv_play.cpp and compiled.
During testing I no longer receive the "Error: Video frame buffering
failed too many times.". With the patch applied I just see a short (<
2seconds) skip in the playback during the switch from one live show to
another and live TV continues. I've moved this fix to 3 of my frontends
and none show the error any longer (just the brief skip).
So, not a perfect fix (I am a perfectionist ;-)) but very acceptable
nonetheless. I hope this patch makes it into the codebase eventually -
sooner the better!
