In general I've found it to be a huge improvement over 0.24 except for
MythMusic. The backend runs much better for me, some nice improvements
in audio and video output and features, and the metadata lookup stuff
has really come a long way.
Your scheduler issue sounds more like an issue with your setup than an
inherent flaw in MythTV, I've never seen it do that and I have 6
I don't have an HDPVR anymore, but my parents have two, I've yet to
see a 0-byte recording from them, though it could also be that it had
to reschedule a recording because of an error that would normally
leave a 0-byte recording.
Metadata lookup has been much improved. I haven't noticed any false
hits as when Myth is "confused" it will request user intervention.
I don't use MythWeather for the same reason, so I have not yet checked
to see, but I don't see how it could be any worse, and the Release
Notes show some bug fixing and such has occurred.
