I get this error frequently as well. Usually about 7 times a day. My wife
thinks MythTV is dodge but this is the only problem I have with an otherwise
The error occurs under the following circumstances:
1) Watching liveTV when a new liveTV program starts. (Suspect new file
2) Watching liveTV when a to-be recorded program starts recording
It never happens during playback of pre-recorded programs. It is limited to
I am running MythTV 0.20 with the following specifics:
a) ext3 File system with LVM
b) Software RAID striped hard disks for /mythtv/video partition - hdparm
c) DVICO Fusion HDTV Dual Channel PCI Card
d) Pentium 2.4GHz / 512MB RAM and NVDIA 5500FX graphics card.
e) Fedora Core 5 - kernel 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5
It used to happen frequently with 0.19 also and I had high hopes for
0.20but alas it still occurs.
The effect of this error is:
1) Display of liveTV stops with the "Error was encountered while displaying
2) Programs due to be recorded are aborted and display of Live TV stops. (I
have 2 channels so this should work sweet).
Can anyone shed some light on what seems to be a common problem?
P.S. When I go to delete pre-recorded shows, I experience a 5second delay
for an hour long show. ext3 is slower than xfs at deleting programs. I
wonder if this is related to the above problem.
