[mythtv-users] Early exit

I have a new problem on my mythbox where viewing any program simply 
stops about a minute before the end. If watching live tv, The display 
just stops and the front end says there was an error. I can then click 
ok and quickly try to get back to the channel before the credits roll. 
If watching a recording, the saved file is simply too short. I assume it 
stopped recording at the same point that the live tv would have crashed 
out. Any idea what this is?

Maybe it only happens on BBC? I've not tested that actually, but we do 
seem to watch more BBC than anything else. I struggle with stuttery 
playback on BBC when most other channels seem fine so maybe there's 
something weird going on there?

I rarely get time to tweak my myth setup, but I do have a couple of 
hours on Thursday evening so I'm hoping to iron out a few wrinkles then.

Looking forward to hearing any thoughts.
