[mythtv-users] Skipping Issues

I have been having an issue since I rebuilt my myth machines a few weeks
ago. When ever I go to skip forward when watching a recording it will
work fine until I have passed about the 30 minute mark or so. After
that skipping 30 sec or 10min will result in the video moving forward a
sec or two, but the time showing it has moved the correct amount.
I am running knoppmyth R5.5 on my FE and MBE. On my laptop I installed
ubuntu repository's mythfrontend and was able to skip ok. Since it was
a more recent version I just compiled .21fixes as of a few hours ago on
my backend and frontend and am still having the issue.
The seek table seems to have ~7k entries/hour/recording. I have run DB
checks and optimize_mythdb and both come back clean.
When I did the reinstall, my hardware and setup changes were as follows:
My main frontend is a completely new machine (X2 5600+ 2GB Ram)
The master backend is the old frontend hardware (Athlon XP 2000+
DB has been moved out of the MBE and on to a separate machine
All machines are connected via GBit wired lan.
At first I thought moving the DB was part of the cause of my issues so I
have turned off things like starting commflag when a recording starts,
but it is still happening. It happens to SD, HD, before the hardware
change and afterwards. Basically anything that is over 30 minutes long

I have tried to dump my brain here but I am sure I am forgetting things
this late so feel free to pry more. Thanks for any help you can
provide. Not being able to watch anything over 30 minutes is becoming a
pain. Off to bed to fight another day.
