I agree that the crashing is its own problem.  However, I also think 
that the feature he recommends is a good idea.  Instead of having the 
hard drives thrash endlessly, have mythtv back out after a certain time, 
say a four hour default.  Saves watts spent on CPU cycles, saves life on 
the hard drive.

My 2 cents.
