My master fe/be needs restarting every day or so... Whenever HD playback gets choppy. I've tried restarting x, myth, mysql, gdm, and nearly every other process I can get at. Only a reboot lets HD play correctly. It's a dedicated Mythbox. No keyboard, mouse, or monitor (well, except for the TV) so whatever is bjorking it up is Myth related.
The slave fe/be runs forever... except that's the one I do all my tinkering on so it gets rebooted more often than it would if I left it alone.
