User Tips (Frozen Video Fix ... Audio Loop Help)

Best TV Tuner for linux out there. Right now it suffers from one problem. Every now and then for some unknown reason the video and audio freezes. It's not difficult to fix, just annoying.

Tip 1. Audio Loop

# pactl load-module module-loopback
The terminal command will return a number. Keep it. You will need it to unload the module, like this
# pactl unload-module (number)

Tip 2. Frozen Video Fix

First, you will need to reload the modules cx8800 and cx88_alsa. To do this run
# sudo rmmod cx8800
# sudo rmmod cx88_alsa

If, when removing cx88_alsa you are told it is in use ... turn it off in your Sound Preferences then try again.

You will then need to unload your audio loop.
# pactl unload-module (number)

After that reload the modules
# sudo modprobe cx8800
# sudo modprobe cx88_alsa

and then restart your audio loop.
# pactl load-module module-loopback

I hope that helps anyone with the same problem. I noticed the forums are pretty dead ... so please share as much as possible if you read this.
I am still not sure what causes the problems. Right now I think it is a conflict with the audio.
