I think that might be the problem I am seeing. I have submitted BT. for
the crashes but it apear to happen after a video is finished but before
comerical detection kicks in. I might be something with the creation of

the show but I have the system setup to generate those for each so as I
just have the front end display them instead of the mini video.
