Thanks for the reply. I can't say how much I/O activity there was at the time since I can't read the dmesg error time? I can't see anything unusual in the mythbackend.log file? I'll have to check out my recent recordings for any missing frames and whatnot as I am way behind on watching stuff. I have stuff from October to watch, he he he. I have a 500gb hdd on my main backend with a PVR-350 and a 500gb on a secondary backend with a PVR-500 in it. Recordings are stored on their own machines since I couldn't figure out the whole NFS share thingy. Thanks for your comments. Happy New Year.
