That's a little worrying. Since this is live TV I suppose there are no subtitles? Can you provide a debug log when you start the stream. Which PVR client are you using? Are you able to provide a reproducible (recorded) sample or is it only with live playback?

I can't really provide a sample since it seems to just be a time related thing. Stopping playback and restarting it usually fixes it for a while. I haven't noticed this exact symptom with playing back recordings, but most of the recordings are 30 minutes long or 1 hour at the most. I think everything is okay with my network and my video signal quality. I have gigabit equipment, of course the pi doesn't have a gigabit jack. I have decent network switches and everything else on my network seems to be working as it should.

Here is a debug log where I started the stream using videoplayer (not omxplayer) after having had the problem occur. In between I did try omxplayer, but switched back to videoplayer (mmal) when I enabled the debug logging. I hope this helps. Smile
Experience: It's what you get when you were expecting something else.
