Any ideas how to get this fixed? This is really getting on my nerves now.
I now detach softhddevice always when I stop watching. It does not
freeze then. But sometimes it freezes right after I attach it! Just a
few seconds of working video and BANG frozen. Really annoying!
Another thing which might be related. On my earlier setup, if I paused
playback, softhddevice would mute the sound. On this setup, audio is
not muted, it is looping the last buffer until playback continues.
That also is an annoying feature. :)
I'm pretty sure I have exact same versions of all VDR software and
plugins, only things changed are the Linux kernel, TBS media drivers,
and possibly the nvidia vdpau drivers.. Everything worked just fine
