Are you referring to this commit?
RingBuffer?: Set the oldfile flag only once per live TV segment.
So far this is only in Master, not 0.25-fixes, because I don't believe
it is addressing the root cause.
I appreciate feedback on these changes, since the problem is affecting
different systems in different ways.
By the way, the slight stuttering at program transitions is
unavoidable for now, according to Daniel K., since there is some DB
stuff going on within the UI thread that won't necessarily complete
within a 60Hz (or whatever) frame interval.
