Most of the time, playing a recording with timestretch enable works fine. Occasionally, I will come across a show that results in mythfrontend crashing.

Original codec was AC3, signed 16 bit, 48 kHz, 8 channels. So it seems that the content is either garbage or ffmpeg incorrect decodes it..

AC3 is 6 channels max... libsoundtouch can only work with up to 6 channels audio.

This segfault can be avoided by going into Setup->Audio, and setting:

Speaker Configuration: 5.1

instead of

Speaker Configuration: 7.1

The crash happens when there is corruption in the recording. It looks like when that happens, myth resets the number of channels to whatever is designated in that configuration, instead of choosing the proper value for the audio stream type.
