Not so, as I just replied to Mark.  This is a backend deadlocking
problem, not a configuration problem.

I won't rule out that it's hardware doing something unexpected, but the
backend should not lock up in such a case.

Hrm.  I dunno how you watch TV in your house -- everyone in a separate
room perhaps?  In our house, we watch TV (well the shows that we are
mutually interested in) together as a family.  That makes it difficult
for her to sit down at 8pm on Monday to watch House only to have me come
along on Wednesday at 8:34 and say "wanna watch House?".  (a) she is
already watching "live" whatever started at 8pm and (b) it's a rerun for
her at that time.
