Hi Mike, thanks for taking the time to help.

Frontend log:

2012-05-07 13:32:40.103059 I  Beginning Video Scan.
2012-05-07 13:32:40.103110 I  buildFileList directory =

Group (myth://Videos@myth/var/lib/mythtv/videos/)

I can't see anything relevant in the backend log, but in case it helps
here's the section around the same time, running from when I started
the frontend to when I killed the backend after collecting the logs:
