Live TV more stable and HD channels
Version 2.333.53 has an "Intel Quick Sync" video accellerator switch in the "live Tv front end".

Check with e.g. GOM converter whether Intel quick sync works for your RP server PC. (http://converter.gomlab.com/eng/guide/qsv.gom)

With the "Intel Quick Sync" video accellerator switched on, start up will be slower but results in
- Support of HD channels when these channels does not have too high bitrate source content.
- More stable TV (the lower the source bitrate the better)

Points to notice:
- quick sync only works when remote potato is started as app (not service) , see http://myfrem.nl/forum/showthread.php?tid=1425;
- android: high AND higher quality donot work! e.g. low and HD720 do work;
- ios: this means the highest setting (quality slider all the way to the left) and the lower settings work.
- Windows 8.1 desktop/tablet clients do not work with the switch on. Windows 8.1 phone does seem to work.

What I, personally, had to do on my RP server machine:
-remove existing PCI-e graphics card, s.t. on chip Intel graphics processor can take over.

RE: Live TV more stable and HD channels
I would like to say thank you for all the progress made on the live TV functionality. My setup has become a lot more stable after the last couple of release. So thank you

I have some question to other who are using TV regarding load performance. First, my setup is an i7 4790k and raid0 with 2 ssd. I am using dvblogic service and dvblogic pluing, which is located on the same machine. The dvblogic service(dvb-c) is 100% stable no issues at all in 8mc. I can load a channel in 3 seconds in 8mc

In emby server it takes me around 30 seconds to show picture from a HD channel. 22 of the 30 seconds goes with ffprobe process (it seems like the ffprobe process is called twice, but not sure). ffmpeg process uses the last seconds. In emby theater the picture is shown after 22 seconds, because no transcoding is done.
