ibedonc, is that attachment a back trace? A back trace should not be near that big -- it is just a text file.

Hi ibedonc. I am available again, and can work on this.

The file you have linked to seems to have a core dump embedded in it. There is not much I can do with that since my system is not identical to yours. A back trace is a textual representation of what all the threads in the program where doing when it crashed. That combined with a log file should allow me to figure out what when wrong.

I did try and reproduce the crash on my own system, but LiveTV with the hauppauge2 external recorder worked okay -- within the limits of LiveTV and MythTV. In other words, I did get some "Could no open decoder" errors, but when it got past that, everything worked as expected.

ubuntu puts crash files in /var/crash , that is where that came from

I was out of town for a week , I have a new system that I have not had the time to put in place , I plan on putting .30 on it and I will test it with that

Original reporter has not commented in 11 months, so assuming this is now working for them.
