You need to check your database for errors - Listt wisdom suggests
using /contrib/optimize_mythdb.pl in a daily/regular cron script. You
should also always allow mythbackend/mythtv-setup to upgrade your
database automatically, as you should never need to manually change
tables (unless you are trying to revert to an earlier schema version).
