I can't help directly, because my machine does the same thing. It runs for
about 20 minutes and then the screen locks up. I do see messages that the
backend is waiting for video ( I don't have the exact error message right
now). It is definitely related to mythtv, because "mplayer /dev/video0"
will play for hours, but when I watch livetv is hangs in 20 minutes every

Subject: [mythtv-users] Myth Box Locks-up after recording
I have a Asus Pundit, with 512mb ram, 200 gig drive, dvd rom, Wireless
PCI (acx_100) and a PVR 250 card. Its running Mandrake 9.2 with a the
0.14 release of MythTV.
It all runs very well, nice clear picture, recordings are excellent etc
etc. BUT It locks up hard ( I still se the picture on the TV) every
time I do a recording in fact it will lock up about 1 hour and 30 min
after the last recording. If I record three shows in a row it will
record all three and then lock up about 1 hour and 30 min later. Its
quite consistent, and it forces me to hard boot every time. If I leave
the box without doing any recordings it will run for days without any
problems. The worst thing is that there is absolutely nothing that I
can find in the logs to indicate any problems. The /var/log/mythtv
folder is empty.
I'm so close to having the MythTV box of my dreams, can anybody help ?
