[mythtv-users] Watching Recordings/Commercial Flagging Problem

When I try to watch recordings on any front end, or a backend trys to flag commercials, I get an error.

I updated my systems to the latest from atrpms and can't watch recordings now. I've posted the log and version output below...

My master backend has two tuners and runs commercial flag jobs only. I have a second backend that has no tuners and it runs commercial flag and transcode jobs. The second backend shares the recorded directory with the master and mounts it via nfs.


SELECT data FROM settings WHERE value = 'MasterServerIP' AND hostname IS NULL;
Does return my master backend IP successfully.
