Ive seen a similar problem where all of the media for MythMusic, MythVideo
and MythGallery are on an externa Windows file share. When the Windows PC
gets too busy or the firewall on the Windows PC decides to kill the
connection the MythTV box spirals out of control. You might even be
watching a locally recorded video and mythfrontend just hands and needs
