[mythtv-users] Random mythbackend exits

No dice here. It can go for a week without a crash, but sometimes as little
as 15 minutes in between them. It seems that no one has an answer, and I
simply don't know enough about Linux to figure it out. My plan is to build a
temporary backend out of some older hardware to replace this one and then
rebuild this one. I'd be glad to hear from anyone with ideas before I waste
time building 2 systems.
My current "fix" when the wife & kids say "the tv's broke again" is to fire
up TeraTerm and run "/etc/init.d/mythbackend restart". The stop of the
mythbackend service fails each time since it's already dead. So I think the
errors we see in our logs are just building up to whatever is killing the
service. That might explain why it's not the same error every time. It seems
like the failure to connect to itself is the beginning of things going
FYI - I'm running MythDora 3.2 on more than capable hardware.

Did you get anywhere with this? My backend seems to be crashing just
once a day with similar messages in the log. This has only happened
since I replaced my motherboard, before then the backend was solid as
2007-07-14 03:07:57.484 Connecting to backend server:

2007-07-14 03:07:57.498 Connection timed out.
You probably should modify the Master Server
settings in the setup program and set the
proper IP address.

Any hints as to how you may have fixed the problem?
How can the backend have a problem connecting to itself? Is some
other process stealing that port?
Ubuntu Fiesty, Intel box, myth 0.20-fixes.
