 Whilst investigating, this appears to only affect my 32bit clients
 This is using trunk, version 20856

 Master backend is F11 (64bit), running trunk, 3x DVB-T capture cards (not
 Slave backend is F10 (64bit), running trunk, 1x DVB-S capture card (is
 main frontend)

 Two clients both 32bit, 1 running F10, 1 running F11, all at trunk, same

 As far as I can tell from testing:
 Any recording can be viewed on the slave backend. (F10, trunk, 64bit)

 Any DVB-S recording can be viewed on the 32bit clients, (either F10 or F11
 Only some DVB-T recordings can be views on the 32bit clients. It would
 seem that no recording from BBC Three, or BBC can be. Some can from Dave,
 (it seems to maybe be the quality of the recording?)

 Effect is immediate after selecting the recording from the watch
 recordings, and results in a SEGFAULT. Not thoroughly tested, but appears
 to be the same when watching liveTV

 I was going to send in a gdb trace when recompiled with debug, but the
 problem doesn't exist. When compiled with release (after previous test),
 the problem is still there, but when running under gdb, the program hangs
 instead of crashes (at normal crash point).
 Have recompiled with profile, and mythfrontend is still crashing, so
 attached files are from profile.
