I planned to d some system maintenance today, so I ran top before I 
shutdown the system, the top process is mythfrontend:

     PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ 
     857 mythtv    20   0   10.4g   1.5g  40620 S   2.3  40.3  99:47.74 

Out of curiosity, I restarted the frontend:

     PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ 
   31446 mythtv    20   0 9909088 791048 126944 S   1.3  19.7   0:06.45 

Still seems like a lot of RAM, but it's much better than before.

I had vacuumed the system in July, but I vacuumed it again. I also 
borrowed the power supply "tester" from work, voltage levels and PG 
signal passed.

FYI - my problems seemed to start when I changed to Debian 10 back in 
July, around the same time I vacuumed the system.
