Both the newest and older log files show that itís shutting down Comskip right before the hang is detected. While it may be a coincidence, you can always try disabling or uninstalling it to see if that helps.

I disabled comskip and Malore extras, but no change. I'm at a loss, I may have to re-install my server from scratch.

Here is what I would do before resorting to reinstalling:

See if a plugin in causing the problem:
- Remove ALL plugins and reboot.
- If the hang goes away then add them in one by one until you find the problem.

See if your wiz.bin is corrupted:

- Stop the server.
- Copy the existing wiz.bin and wiz.bak.
- Delete wiz.bin and wiz.bak.
- Reboot.

If the hang goes away it's a pretty good bet that the wiz.bin is corrupted. The only "recovery" is to start with a new wiz.bin (which is what happens when you delete the existing wiz.*) or use a wiz.bin from a recent backup before the hang started.

See if you have a drive failing:
- Remove all of the import directories and recording directories and then reboot.
- If the hang goes away, add the recording and import directories back one at a time.

In my experience these are the usual causes for a hang.

Tmiranda, thanks for those suggestions. I will try them as I proceed with troubleshooting I've been busy the last couple of days so I haven't done much with my Server.

What linux os & version are you running on? I know I had some issues in Ubuntu family. Recently switched to MxLinux 18.1 with 4.19 kernel ( was my primary linux driver for other than media server)using Hauppauge pci cards & seems to be running smoothly so far. Still ironing out the kinks around sysvinit/systemd issues. Running with systemd but prefer sysvinit for security & privacy, functionality reasons. Are your tuner cards all network/external or do you have any internal cards installed?

I am running Ubuntu 18.04.2. I followed some of the suggestions that Comskip was probably to blame so I went ahead and blocked it from running during the daytime. Since making the change I no longer have the issue. However, whenever Comskip is running it does still freeze up the system but it now only runs over night.
