    Live TV stutters- most of the time I have to pause for a second

    I have a fresh up to date 12.04 mythbuntu installation. I use DVB-T via a hauppage card. For some reasons the LiveTV stutters a bit most of the time. If I pause for a second the stream runs smooth again. In previous mythbuntu installations this was much better. The TV buffering seams not to run anymore in an optimized way. Any thoughts?
    (my installation: Intel i3-2000T processor as CPU and GPU)

    I believe this has been fixed in 0.25-fixes. Update via mythbuntu-repos.

    Also check your playback profiles. Some of them were removed, So you need to choose another one.

    Thanks for your replies.

    The latest 0.25 repos-fixes were already installed.
    I will try to change the playback settings. Has anybody a satisfying setting for a Intel i3-2100 CPU/GPU processor?

    I played around with some different playback profiles. The problem stays. But maybe I have not chosen the right combination.

    This is most likely due to the playback being too close to the "edge" of the record buffer. That is why it helps when you pause for a while.

    I have to do the same on some of my channels. Maybe those channels have extra high bandwidth or GOP-length.
