[mythtv-users] MythMusic "scan for new music" Locks system

This could very well be an NFS problem.  For scanning such a large
amount of information, you'll want to fix up your NFS settings.  First
of all, turn ON asynchronous writes.  There are all sorts of performance
optimizations that you should look at, just google for them.  

I suggest this because this sounds like a typical NFS lockup.  One side
is waiting for the other to complete a request.   It will wait forever,
and depending on your mounts, will freeze the entire system.  You might
want to try just waiting for a couple of hours...

good luck!
