   I sent this to the list a couple of weeks ago but no answers.
Mostly I'm just interested in how to have my frontend not drop back to
the media library screen where it makes me choose the program again.
How can I get MythTV to just pause, if necessary, and wait for data
when this starts happening instead of dropping out and making me go
back to the menu?

   I had a rash of this a couple of weeks ago and again last night.
Probably some sort of wireless stuff in the neighborhood, etc., kicked
it off and reminded me that I'd asked this question a while back.
