As an alternate datapoint, we're running a KT400A based Asus mbo in our
MythBox, with two 250's and a Barton 2500+; 512MB of ram and 2
BarracudaATA 200's, and we don't see hardware problem one.
And the machine has been on 24x7 since about August 1st or so.
You might try newer ivtv drivers (0.2.0rc1) as there should be some
improvements for via based horror.
