Just a random thought. Could this be a libmpeg2 problem.
I have differing libmpeg2 rpms on frontend and the backend.
I have upgraded the frontend to the 0.5.1-5 atrpm binaries and removed
the rpmforge binary.
I now have a very long cable (although not x-over so I am hoping my
100/1000 ethernet will autoswitch) and I will test again tonight.
This is getting on my wick end!
As an aside I can record a live tv on the backend and the watch it on as
am in progress recording on the remote frontend in more or less
real-time perfectly but it's a fairly stupid way to watch TV.
