I have the same problem with a 100Mbit wired Ethernet connection and 2
dual processor rigs. If I am moving shows from the master backend box
to the local machine (via nfs) the connection to database does not get
enough bandwidth and times out. It does this for any of the myth
utilities or the frontend. In the frontend this shows up as very slow
menus. In the utilities(transcode, mythcommflag, mytharchive ...) they
usually quit with an error.
