Using 20060806 dongle crashes MythTV backend.

    I was wondering if somebody has noticed this behaviour: I have started to use the dongle of August 6, 2006, and it works nicely for me since I figured out how to serve the dongle.bin.ver and dongle.bin. The emulation with the Hauppauge gives me a way to view my AVI collection, and the MythTV recording option can show me my TV recordings. However, it seems that sometimes when I view the recordings it crashes the mythtvbackend software.

    Since the backend runs as a daemon I don't get any console log errors, it just stops. Restarting it works nicely and all is well, but it's not what I would expect. Perhaps the crash occurs when I power down the MVP while watching, perhaps the backend crashes because it can't output the stream when it's not properly exited?

    Anybody else seen this before?

      My myth backend was also crashing.  The fix was using NFS rather than the Myth protocol to communicate the video.  This is an option of mcmvp using the -r flag.
