[abrt] crash in me-tv-1.2.4-1.fc13: raise: Process /usr/bin/me-tv-player was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)

abrt 1.1.1 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: me-tv-player fifo:///home/jack/.me-tv/me-tv.fifo 31457483 '' '' '' false
comment: I was watching tv when the me-tv app crashed. I've been having difficulty tuning some stations. They are losing video and audio every two seconds or so - at regular intervals. The bad channels are coming from the same direction as the channels that come in well. I don't know if this has anything to do with the crash but it is very annoying. I am using the HD 5500 tv tuner card that is made for Linux.
reason: Process /usr/bin/me-tv-player was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)

can you try "kaffeine" to make sure it's not your Tv Tuner? Thanks.
Kaffeine works. I am unable to watch in the kaffeine interface. 5 minutes after starting a recording I can open the file up with VLC and watch without the 2 second interruptions that happen in both me-tv and in xine. That makes channel surfing inconvenient. I like the me-tv interface and would like to use it if the 2 second interruptions in signal can be fixed. I still have not been able to reproduce the crashes.
The interruption seems to be a hardware/driver flaw.
Anyways, i just built me-tv-1.2.6 and it's pushed to updates-testing. If you want, try it out if it's any better:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update me-tv
If you can't reproduce the crash, it was most likely just a gremlin.
Thanks, Thomas. Your help with this has been great. I will certainly give the new build a try.
Seems it's fixed with the latest version. Thanks for testing.
