Nothing there either (like dmesg, the last entry is ~20 seconds after boot).

The alignment looks good:

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders, total 3907029168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0001c877

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1            2048  3907028991  1953513472   83  Linux
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the sector size of the partition:
$ sudo xfs_growfs -n /dev/sdb1
meta-data=/dev/sdb1              isize=256    agcount=32, agsize=15261824 blks
         =                       sectsz=512   attr=2
data     =                       bsize=4096   blocks=488378368, imaxpct=5
         =                       sunit=0      swidth=0 blks
naming   =version 2              bsize=4096   ascii-ci=0
log      =internal               bsize=4096   blocks=238466, version=2
         =                       sectsz=512   sunit=0 blks, lazy-count=1
realtime =none                   extsz=4096   blocks=0, rtextents=0
Looks like I'll be redoing the partition...

My problem isn't limited to LiveTV. I have issues playing back recordings. It's worse when other recordings are being made in the background, but it still happens (on occasion) when the system is doing nothing else beside playing back what I'm watching.
