Could it be that mythfronend can't open your /dev/dsp (soundcard) to
play while it's recording from the tuner?

Try running mythfrontend from a command shell; that should provide
some debug information for you.

| Hi all,
| I have been using my Knoppmyth install for watching live tv for a
| few weeks now. I have ventured into recording today by scheduling a
|  recording.
| About 30 seconds before the scheduled recording, I get a popup with
|  3 options. I choose "Watch while recording" at which point Mythtv
| changes the channel and begins recording. About 20 seconds into the
|  recording the screen freezes but as far as I can tell the
| recording progresses as normal.
| If I attempt to watch the recording while in progress I only get a
| black screen, no sound. Watching live tv after recording also
| results in a black screen, no sound. In order to get myth working
| again I need to do a hard reboot.
| After the reboot I can watch either the recorded show or live tv
| withouth problems.
| I don't know where to begin with this one. Any ideas what could be
| wrong?
