Does the drive that the recording is on spin down?  If so, it may be
taking too long to spin up again.  So when you unpause it, the rest of
the data already in RAM plays, then mythfrontend waits for more data
from the disk, and times out when it does not arrive.  In v30, you
usually get a popup message about this if it happens.  The logs should
show some sort of message such as "waiting too long".
