Have you determined whether it's the CD's that are the problem?  In 
other words, does it always hang on certain CD's and work on other CD's?

 From http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-15.html#ss15.6 :
Another item to consider: there are some CDs that contain computer data 
that runs as a "CD Extra" when inserted into some Windows PCs and 
Macintoshes. As of 2003-06-10, MythMusic doesn't support track skipping 
or individual track selection, so if you have a CD with "CD Extra" data 
you will not be able to encode it; MythMusic will hang attempting to 
encode the non-audio data.
