Although it doesn't happen every time, on a frequent basis, my HTPC will freeze when trying to play a recorded show. After selecting the recording, then selecting play, the loading circle comes up and the screen freezes there. The system becomes completely unresponsive (CtrlAltDel does nothing), and the only available option is a cold restart. This is happening a lot, maybe half of the time I try to play a recording. Ive looked through event logs and havent been able to find any patterns or obvious events. im not all that experienced at looking through the MS event log though. Any thoughts? Thanks!
-Intel NUC (core i3 ultra book series)
-OS installed on msata
-Recorded tv is on a 3TB WD green drive in a usb 3.0 enclosure
-I boot into EventGhost as a shell and always have XBMC running. WMC launches and pushes XBMC to the background.
-Tasks being performed on the storage drive at any given time:
--recording up to 3 TV shows from HDHR
--processing recordings for commercials (DVRMST, only one worker at a time)
---watching a recording
Btw I've already removed the top to the enclosure and troubleshooted heat issues (which are a problem with the intel NUC) and that's not the problem.
