Those are some pretty messed up messages.  Something's seriously wrong 
here, all right.

If you copy (part of) a recording directly to somewhere on your 
frontend, can you play it with the 'mythtv' command?  mplayer?

You snipped out the line that says what video sync method you're using. 
  OpenGL?  RTC?  usleep w/ busy wait?

You do have 'extra audio buffering' enabled, right?

What's the ALSA version on your frontend, and the one you're building 
against?  Go through the past month or so of the -dev list for discussion.

What kind of network connects them?

Any errors in your database (with mysqlcheck)?
