When TV is live, sagetvtranscoder.exe fails to start

So, let me explain the symptoms. TV is being recorded, and I am trying to watch that live broadcast over placeshifter at around 300K. At the same time, commercial detection is running (show analyzer). I can usually skip around that live program a few times, but eventually after one skip the placeshifter client stops getting streamed video (the GUI is fine).

Not if I stop the stream and try to restart it, the same failure persists (this works if the program is not live), and the video stream does not start. When I look at what is happening in the server, I can see sagetvtranscoder.exe start up and immediately close in the task manager. So once this hickup happens, I cannot watch the program, even if I try to start streaming it at a different point.

I believe this problem began when I upgraded to 6.1.9. Prior to this, I still had programs fail when I skipped around, but they immediately started up again when I stopped and started the stream again.

has anyone else seen this behavior, and if so what is the solution?

I'm being ignored

I've even upgraded to the newest 6.2 version. Someone must have a suggestion or seen this behavior before.
