Any updates on the 0.21 version of Mythtv ?? I see that we are still at
0.20 in ports
I am running the 0.21 from the initial call to test, after about 2
months of trialing the only problem I am experiencing is audio and video
stuttering after a while (think its something to do with the DVB and
adverts fading to black -- not sure its FreeBSD related.)
