Hi

Am running the latest streamdev cvs, patched with
 http://cobradevil.org/downloads/streamdev-xbmc.patch
but am getting frozen live video (recordings are fine) in XBMC and the 
following:

Mar 30 06:28:10 freddy vdr: [12674] buffer stats: 63920 (1%) used

How do I diagnose?

Can I expand the buffer (even temporarily) to see if this is what's causing 
the frozen video?

Any other ideas?
