Solved the problem with the rare stocking. Edit in the .app folder in Contents/Resources the files dboxcommander and dboxcommaderrec and insert the following: --file-caching 5000
It should look like this:
./ggrab -q -host $dboxip -port 31338 -p $vpid $apid $apid2 $apid3 $apid4 $apid5 -o - | "$vlcpfad" --file-caching 5000 /dev/stdin -v 0 >> /dev/null 2>&1
and in the dboxcommaderrec file also insert --file-caching 5000 in the same position.
The 5000 is the cache in ms....so you can reduce it until it starts stocking again to minimize the delay in playback
If there are messages for buffer errors try setting to single language. Its because of the slow 10MBit of the DBox. With multi language it is sometimes to small and stockes the picture or greates buffer error messages.
