Any advice or insight most appreciated...
I'm using a combined FE/BE with latest 0.20.2, but this also applies to
0.20.0. Ran smooth for several months on FC6. Then, I tried MythDora 4. It
worked well, but I would occasionally get a frontend "Error displaying
video" error while watching LiveTV. Whenever this occurred it was always
exactly on the half-hour or the hour. Then, I installed latest 0.20.2 on
Ubuntu Feisty a couple days ago, and I'm having the same problems.
Mythfrontend stderr looks like:

2007-09-09 07:30:07.982 NVP, Error: SwitchToProgram's OpenFile failed

recorded show. When I went to play the show, I also got the same ringbuf
error listed above. Interestingly enough, the show WAS recorded, but under a
slightly different filename.
Mythfrontend was looking for:
But, the show was dutifully recorded in its entirety in:
I looked in the database, and indeed the entry for the recording had a
different filename than that on the disk. Why would mythbackend log the
filename in mysql with a different string than the filename that gets
written to the disk?
I can send any listings or specs that would be helpful...
