Last night, without warning, my backend:

exited with a status of 134, as reported by upstart.

There is nothing useful in the log indicating why this is:

According to apt-get policy, I do have the latest 0.25 packages installed. I am reluctant to go around upgrading to 0.26 at the moment and will wait a while while the early-adopters shake out the bugs. :-/

Any thoughts as to why this might have happened?

Brian, has this problem reoccurred since?

Assuming upstart is reporting the exit code from the mythbackend then exit code 134 is GENERIC_EXIT_DB_ERROR so for some reason the backend had a problem executing a database query but the log snipped doesn't show any database errors.

If it exited without warning, it's probably a crash from an abort, and we would need a proper backtrace ( ) of the abort to see if it's code we can fix (since MythTV doesn't generally use aborts, the abort is probably in a library, such as ffmpeg). It could have been caused, for example, by bad input video (due to a bad signal or whatever) that yielded corrupt video data for ffmpeg.

I don't think I have seen this since, no.

Since it's not a recurring problem, and since it may not be possible to get a backtrace, I'm going to close this one. If you are able to obtain a backtrace or core dump of a similar crash, please open a new ticket with the additional information. Thanks for the report and for the quick response to the request for information.
