The PES-based VDR-1.6 also has trouble when recording from high
bandwidth channels. It doesn't crash though, it just has slow OSD,
juddery playback and partially broken recordings.
And by the way: The recording interface has always been fetching the TV
stream in TS format. Only playback was using PES.

To avoid this, either switch to a lower bandwidth channel that is fed
from a budget card, or start a recording playback and go to pause. That
way the bandwidth should be low enough.

A nice workaround would be a plugin that does this automatically as soom
as the FF device tries to record and playback high bandwidth channels at
the same time.


Cheers,

Udo
