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.

What line did you add the sleep on? Perhaps you have a diff file?

I know it is a dirty hack but my friend is getting sicker and sicker 
with MythTV and I need something that takes the pain away, even if it is 
not long-term sane.
