Description (last modified by Isaac Richards)

Currently, I am watching MythTV 6 hours behind livetv. If I pause this for a while, come back.. watch a bit.. and then hit skip or ff, it takes upwards of 10 minutes for Myth to skip 30 seconds ahead.

Clearly this has something to do with the size of the ringbuffer, and I see the changes being made to LiveTV currently. This bug report is mainly meant to show that people do pause livetv (and I do frequently!) and come back hours later..

Hopefully the new ringbuffer method will help in this respect..
