  I get a similar problem but for me the errors are in the frontend log not the backend log, but I suspect that is because I'm running a combined BE/FE machine. 

I've ruled out disk IO completely by moving my LiveTV storage group to a RAM filesystem and I still get the issue. I'm convinced it's because the frontend is playing too close to realtime, I suspect it isn't helped by the fact the BE prefers to write in 64kib chunks and the FE prefers to read in 32kib chunks. I do however have a fix - its a dirty hack, I've added a 2 second sleep to MythPlayer::OpenFile of course this slows down channel changes etc but so far (about a week) I've not had a reoccurance.
