My icons are on a NFS share accessible by all my frontends. They show
up perfectly in the EPG and OSD. So I don't think permissions or
location of the icons are the problem. The front end query for them
might be though... I don't know. When one moves from recording to
recording in the watch recordings screens that is the one query that
happens. If it is blocked waiting for the BUSQ that could be the
The only time I notice the blocking is when two BUSQs are triggered
close to each other. So deleting two recordings back to back does it.
I also see it in the EPG when I set two items to record back to back.
