Sorry to reply to myself, just wanted to add a tidbit of information. I 
have been stating that its only HD stuff that causes the segfault. Turns 
out it actually anything recorded off my STB connected via firewire. So 
even the SD digital stuff is causing the segfault. These are all 
recorded using mpeg2ts obviously. All other shows are recorded on my PVR 
150 and 250. Those seem to play just fine on trouble system.

Thanks, just wanted to stick that in there in case it helps.
