> What version of the ivtv driver are you using?
I'm using 0.3.2p, as you are now. This very well may be the problem, but I
didn't assume so since it never has been in the past (except when it's
obvious from DMA errors and such). Since I upgraded Myth and ivtv that same
night, I didn't consider ivtv to be the culprit. I'll try downgrading it
tomorrow (err later today...need sleep first).
I can confirm though that the timestamp problem still exists with the 0.2
series. I've been getting occasional DMA errors with it as well, and this is
why I upgraded to 0.3.2p, after hearing about some serious improvements to
the DMA code by Chris. And, besides this freezing, it does run very very
well. Not a single error since I installed it.
Anyway, I'll try downgrading again and see. I will also try a 2.6.8 kernel
like the first reply suggested. I'm having a hard time seeing why the kernel
would affect Myth behavior this way, but hey, anything's possible. Ideally I
would like to keep this ivtv driver because of how well it has been running.
If the older kernel works with it, then I'll keep it.
