Hi Marc,

I have USE_LIVEBUFFER=1 in /etc/make.conf, but this then does not seem 
to work correctly?

Is the forwads/backward feature also part of this problem, or is it just 
me who has this problem..

Has vdr-1.7 btw more resource-requirements than vdr-1.6? I still run my 
vdr on an epia mii 12000 board with 1gb memory. The 1.7 version of vdr 
has much more problem in keeping the palyback in sync. Also live-tv has 
problems keeping in sync. The sound is very often seconds behind the 

To keep my family happy, I was now forced to revert back to 1.6, cause 
my wife does not like the problem with sound being out of sync.. Also 
the rewinding/forwading the watched program/recording started to get on 
her nervs ;-)
