I have the same problem with 13.2 with live streams.
I loaded TVMC and it plays great

I have same issue. Tried turning off hardware acceleration and tried zero cache..... sucks because I got pseudotv live running really well and now it crashes all the time. ...I feel like it had to be a cache thing because it happens when a bunch of videos have been loaded through genesis or I change channels in pseudotv.

If going by your other thread you have these problems,then its happening because you are running out of space

Did you uninstall xbmc before you installed tvmc? Did you make sure to delete all cache and data and clean everything out properly?

Also people using zero cache,as we have said time and time again,this will make things worse as it will buffer endlessly to your hard drive,again causing crashing and booting you out

Also if you have an error saying failed to start commoncache,then you have have a problem with your setup so something is wrong somewhere

Try find out whats eating your space and get rid of it,likewise try to sort the failed to start commoncache error

Hopefully this will help you get sorted :)

Seriously. This is good advice.

The zero cache advancedsettings file has gotten the very undeserved reputation of fixing any and all XBMC issues. But it does not help with the majority of the issues that people try and use it for. The zero cache file is not a magic fix for buffering. It doesn't make XBMC buffer any faster. It only allows XBMC to buffer further ahead in time than the default setting, it does not affect the rate of buffering. If you're experiencing buffering, it's due to your own network setup or the network speed of the hoster you're streaming from. Understand that internet bandwidth is a two-way street. You can have a 10MB connection on your network, but you'll still be limited to the network response speed of the host you're streaming from. The zero cache advancedsettings file will not help with that situation at all. And as mj said above, when you implement that zero cache setting, you're significantly reducing the amount of HD space on the device. Because when you use the zero cache setting, XBMC no longer uses the device RAM for caching at all, and uses only HD space and ignores RAM. On low storage devices, using that zero cache setting can make storage management much worse, because every time you stream a video, you're using HD space to do so and it will cache the entire video to the hard drive while you're watching. So if you have a really fast internet connection and use the zero cache setting, you can run out of hard drive space watching a single video. And you can still experience buffering, because buffering is usually caused by the response from the hoster you're streaming from.

If you're having issues with commoncache, then try and figure out why. Look at your log file. Upload your log file to http://xbmclogs.com/ and post the link here for others to look at if you don't know what to look for. Load the tvaddons.co Maintenance utility. Use that to see what modules are currently installed. You can install commoncache from there if it needs installed.

You can run them side by side,but if you were getting messages like you said in your other thread about running out of space when you just had xbmc installed,installing tvmc and all of its addons will surely only make things worse as it will take up even more space

But if you are getting that error,definately sounds like a problem regardless of anything else
