    I have an issue where myt tv service keeps crashing - it can last several hours or keep failing instantly. Has only been a problem since the upgrade to 1.3.

    I am recording my live tv buffer to a ramdrive, and recordings to a physical disk. I am using the custom data grabber plugin and have posted there incase its caused by this but am attaching logs incase anyone smarter than I can see the cause for the crashout in here. I can drop my database or reinstall if required - just need a more stable tv service to keep the family happy!
    Any ideas welcome!

    It seems that your custom EPG grabber is causing crash of TvService. Try to disable it.
