I have a large video library on a NAS (HP Microserver actually) device, connected to the mythtv backend/ frontend.

The network is cabled gigabit and seems to be performing OK.

However, scanning for videos always misses some files; on the first attempt about a third of the files are not read/ scanned and therefore not added to the database.

A subsequent retry will then retrieve the file names that were missed in the first scan, while dropping off others.

Very annoying.

I have cleaned house, i.e., removed the paths from the settings and rescanned for zero files, and retried. The results remain as described above.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening and what I might do about it?
