Do you have a recording group setup on the NFS partition that mythtv is
going to be accessing?

I have seen similar funny stuff happen, it used to happened around 2.6.22*
(on each end), and quit happening around 2.6.24* and now has started happening
again with 2.6.25* on both ends.

Similar to what you have the only thing I see is "NFS server not responding" and
restarting the NFS server end (/etc/init.d/nfs restart) appears to get things to
continue on the NFS client. No other messages appear on either end that
indicate that anything is wrong, other non-nfs partitions on the client work
find, the machine is still up, and the NFS server is still up and fine, and
after a restart things will again work for a while (hours or days).
