In particular, mdean writes:

  The generic error message, "Error opening jump program file
  buffer," describes the final symptom of many different
  problems--the file MythTV is supposed to play back in Live TV
  doesn't exist. This problem can be caused by system or
  MythTV misconfiguration or, in some cases, MythTV code failures.
  In other words, having the message, "Error opening jump program
  file buffer," in your logs messages does /not/ mean you are seeing
  the same issue as the original reporter.
