Choppy playback: asked for new data packet, with nothing available
HTS Tvheadend 4.1-389~g10d7654
Problem occurs on Kodi 15.1 (Mac OS, OSMC, Kodibuntu, W10) and VLC 2.2.1 (Mac OS)
VLC (Mac OS)
Choppy playback on certain "Stingray Music" channels. Streams are MPEG-2 Video. When starting such a channel playback starts choppy, Kodi shows "Buffering..." After a while playback is fine. No weird messages in TVH. Kodi logs does show "WARNING: CDVDMessageQueue(audio)::Get - asked for new data packet, with nothing available" when the playback is interrupted. Please take a look at the kodi.log file I added.
Playback of H.264 channels is just fine.

A new discovery; I start a radio station on my Kodi mediacenter in the living room. Playback is ok, no stuttering. I go to the mediacenter upstairs with Kodi and start the same radio channel
to be clear the mediacenter in the living room is still playing said channel and Kodi upstairs plays with stuttering.
Anyone an idea?
TVH shows 0 BER, 0 uncorrectable blocks, 0 transport errors, 0 continuity errors. SNR and signal strength @ 100%
