Unhappy Clients lock up on 2.1

I upgraded my server and 5 clients. The server works fine and all recorded shows are fine. If I try and watch a recorded show on any of the 5 clients they will play fine for a while and then they ALL lock up. CPU usage on the clients is 50-60%. All clients are WinXP-Pro SP1. 4 of them are different mother-boards. THEY ALL LOCK UP. This is new in 2.1, worked fine in 2.0. Any ideas. Same shows play fine on server.

Client locks up

All machines have XP Pro with SP1 with all updates but SP2. Server is only used for HTPC. 3.0P4 with 2Ghz ram. OS is on its own drive, video stored on 400Ghz Raid-0.
When a client locks up its CPU usage hits 50+%. You have to end Sage on CLient to unfreeze it. Only one Client at a time is viewing and nothing is being recorded on Server at the time.

I know you probably don't want to hear this, but it might help you narrow it down. Backup your wiz.bin file and pull it out of the directory. Start sage up again and run setup to get your tuner/s setup again. By creating this new empty wiz.bin file, you will probably see these problems go away. I had a few issues, and wish I had done the same thing. For me it turned out to be a thing with the tuner configs and some of my favorites. After a while of pulling my hair out and screaming at sage, I got it to stabilize. Again, I would rather have started with a fresh wiz.bin file looking back at it.

Hope this helps.
