I've been getting this error on my local and remote frontends daily
for the past few weeks and it's driving me nuts. I'm running a recent
mythtv-0.20-fixes on both the master and remote frontend/backends.
This instance occurred while on the Watch Recording screen showing a
video preview. I don't know about the others, but I will start
watching for the pattern. I have to kill mythfrontend and restart it
to recover.

Any ideas what the problem may be?
