Thanks Ben, I have no idea if my issue is the same as that one. I've
attached a -v audio log.

I don't mind trying to compile from source, so that I could provide a
backtrace. But I don't know exactly how to go about it. Mainly because I
don't know what all rpms I'd have to remove before trying to compile
from source.

I can easily grep for rpms with *myth* in the names and remove all
those, then download the source. But I don't know if thats sufficient,
or if I would still have lingering libraries from the rpms.

Also, there's the fact that my backend plays back the HD stuff just
fine, and its on the same SVN release. And then today, for grins, I
installed mythfrontend on my somewhat under powered laptop to see how it
would handle the HD content. It plays back the HD recordings, not
smoothly lots of prebuffering pauses, but it never segfaults like my 
main frontend does.

Makes me think something is wrong with the hardware on this frontend,
except mplayer plays the HD stuff fine.


PS - original attempt to attach mythfrontend log got blocked because of 
size, here is a link http://myth.laplantefamily.net/mythfrontend.log
