Is this by any chance a time that mythfilldatabase is running? I never
had it skip like that, but I did find that if it ran while I (or
rather, my wife) was watching LiveTV, if I changed channels at wrong
moment, the system would hang and then drop me back to the menu. It
took me a while to track it down to being related to mythfilldatabase.
I now set it to run only while we are sleeping and have not had that
problem in nearly 2 years.
