I am running a mythtv backend server on Fedora Core 6, installed using the RPM at version 0.20.1-157 and setting on my network's DMZ. One of my frontends is running on an XBOX (Xebian) with the frontend package version at 
0.20-0.3.The problem that I am experiencing is with frequent disconnects. I can start mythfrontend fine, I can navigate to live tv, or to a recorded program without issue. I can also watch either category. However, if I set idle for around 20 minutes (rough estimate), I lose connection with the backend. If I am watching a show, the program continues to run without issue, but when I go to a menu or navigate to recordings the system hangs. In order to reestablish a connection, I have to kill the frontend application, and restart it (which is incredibly slow on an XBOX). I know that I have disconnected because the last line of the console states that I disconnected from the server (I will try to post the exact output when I get off of work). Do you think this is a versioning problem, or is there something wrong with my configuration, or is it maybe a networking issue? Thanks for your help.
-- DanielThe only way to troubleshoot this is to start inspecting your log files.  If this is a MythTV problem, then your mythbackend log should give you a clue.  You may need to run mythfrontend from a command line (or specify a logfile) to see what error messages it is generating. 
If not, then start looking in the other log files (typically in the /var/log/ directory) on both the front and back ends.  Once you can find the underlying error(s), then Google can provide solutions.Tom
