Not being helpful, just brings that old joke to mind:
Patient: Dr Dr, my arm hurts whenever I raise it like this.
Dr: then don't.
Incidentally I was getting crashes when using Commercial skipping in the
backend, seemed to depend on the options I used, so I turned it off.
Not very helpful to Isaac I know, but my wife appreciated it and it's
been stable ever since. I only use transcode when I'm looking to save
some disc space because I don't have time to watch something right now.
I'm waiting for next stable release to fix the deleted/transcoded
recording disk space when not using NFS issue, but so far I'm as happy
as a pig in mud.
Incidentally, I use the "start X and myth from inittab" technique. If
the front end crashes for whatever reason it restarts itself
automatically. If it hangs I just CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE myself back into
business. It's back up in 5-10 seconds. Also using a Liteon IR
keyboard which means, I can actually hit those keys. Wife doesn't seem
to mind too much.
