Summary: DVB Stream UI Deadlock
Version: Mercurial 0.99.x
Xine's current implementation causes dvb streams to effectively deadlock the UI
so long as a dvb signal is lost.
Some of the signals I get are very weak.
If I tune to one of these weak signals and the signal gets lost, xine will just
sit there waiting to regain the signal.
While it is sitting, xine will not respond to any UI interaction or channel
The only way to get control back is to either killall -15 xine or wait for the
signal to come back (if it ever does).
When xine is started again after being tuned to some station and that station
is no longer available, xine will not respond to change anything. The only
solution here is to run xine by the command line like so: xine 'dvb://a working
Which isn't an option for most users who don't even know what a command-line
This becomes a serious problem on mobile systems with a usb-based linux and
usb-based dvb device where (or a notebook/laptop + dvb).
Lets say the person is in a car, the signal is very likely to come and go
depending on location.
If and when the signal gets lost or weakened, a user cannot just change the
channel to any other station nor can they start and use xine dvb to tune to
