I'm not sure where to fix the time-zone issue. Mythtv-setup doesn't have any place to specify time zone, and all the config files I've familiarized myself with have no place where it is specified.
Here's my FE log: http://tinyurl.com/y9zhxdg
Here's the BE log for the same time: http://tinyurl.com/y8hvk3q
I don't see anything in them that even indicates why the FE is crashing. There doesn't seem to be any error at all that is a problem. These were both done on verbose level 'most'
