What are your channel switching times?
I've used 1.7.1 + extension patches 64 to have the livebuffer + xinelibout
and was unhappy with switching time, even on the same transponder.
I've went back to 1.7.0 + the same xinelibout and see big improvements in
switching time. I can see "sync early" messages in VDR logs, so I assume it
makes the difference. Livebuffer probably breaks the ability to sync early.
