Transcoding on the fly no longer seems to be working

I was running that last DVR Beta and decided to upgrade. Upgraded to 1.5.2, then to 1.5.4, and in both versions when trying to transcode a file I get the following error:

ERROR - Throttle: timed out trying to read chunk -1

I wondered if it was a permissions problem, but everything looked fine. All the files I'm trying to play worked fine previously. Only files that work are ones that don't need to be transcoded while playing.

    I updated to Version via pkg today and now I cant get anything to play. It worked just fine before the upgrade.
