All of a sudden (the week of Nov. 5, 2014) the mythtvfrontend.re started hogging the CPU, without warning.
Tonight is the 2nd night this week that the Mythtv frontend became unresponsive to the IR Remote AND the pc keyboard.
Both times, I used the pc keyboard and did an ALT-F1 to get to a terminal screen, and checked the "top" command.
Both times, I saw the mythfrontend.re process taking up over 100% of the CPU!
I found that if I did a "sudo pkill mythrontend" then "sudo pkill mythfrontend.re", I was able to get control of the GUI interface again.
At that point, I restarted the Mythtv Frontend from the GUI interface and it worked again.
Is anyone else seeing this CPU hogging?
Is this realted to the mythtv 0.27.4 update or other updates this week?
