Comment(by anonymous):


 I'm having the same issue.

 I have been running MythTV under Gentoo for over 5 years over many
 versions, however this is the first time I've been running a completely
 separate backend.  I now have three minimyth front ends on a variety of
 hardware from an AMD64 to a Pentium 4 to a newer ATOM.

 I am also running heyu, which is an X10 utility, plus squeezeboxserver for
 music, as well as apache2.  cpudyn is taking care of CPU power and hard
 disk spindown on my main disk.

 Everything works great for about 2 to 3 week after a fresh backend boot,
 and then suddenly, one day, mythbackend stops recording.  Everything else
 is working, including the ability to see upcoming recordings, but the
 backend will not simply record.

 Beside the conversion to running only mythbackend on a dedicated server, I
 upgraded to mythtv ver 22824 when this occurred and added a HDHomeRun
 capture device during the same upgrade.  minimyth was also upgraded to
 version 0.22.0-72 which was the latest stable release.

 The server is an SiS 764 chipset board with a Turion64 processor.  There
 are 2 PVR500 boards in it, for 4 analog capture.  There is 2GB of memory
 and 4 GB of swap available.  The only thing that seems to be unusual is I
 have the commercial flagging set to occur while recording is in progress,
 rather than once the entire program has finished recording.  This means a
 top will show mythcommflag taking up to 80 - 90 % of the CPU.  However
 mythcommflag runs as priority 37, which is the lowest priority task.
