I have had similar issues (I think) -- I have my store drive for recordings on my network server which is connected to my mythbox via NFS. What I have noted is that the NFS share will *hang* at some random time causing myth to hang... If I go into the media server and restart the NFS kernel everything works again. However, on my main box -- those NFS shares are still avaialble (before restarting the NFS kernel). Really don't have a clue on how to troubleshoot that -- so I am following your efforts closely :}
