Soft reboot for me. Restarting mythtv-backend did not help.

My system was powered off overnight but had the high CPU usage problem 
this morning (power up about 3.5 hrs ago, 10:30 NZST). Also my 
config.xml file was trashed (empty file) apparently when the frontend 
shut down yesterday. Not sure if the two issues are related.
