I know I should do this, but I doubt it will fix my immediate problem.
 I literally was able to see that the backend was listening on the
correct port and then later when I came home and tried to watch a
recording (which I could do when I saw the backend was listening)
everything went kaput and netstat indicated the backend was no longer

I am happy to accept that it is a hardware problem and I need to build
a new machine (which I have been meaning to do ever since VDAPA came
out), but obviously if it is some software issue, I can troubleshoot
that first.
