Sorry I did not keep logs of my abit bp6, but I vaguely seem to recall seeing 
this error many times on my boards' logs, and I didn't even think about it; 
because everything kept on working just fine.

But my error might have been a less critical subsystem... (the NIC maybe ?) 
I might even be completely confused.  Just saying: are you sure it's a fatal 
error ?  Maybe recording 11 hours straight just strained some minor muscle 
somewhere and all it needs is a good nights' sleep.  ;-|

But anyway, if you're really dependening on this board, and if you don't need 
the CPU power because you're recording with a PVR250, have you considered (as 
a last resort) to take out one of the CPU's (or load a non-SMP kernel)...? 

Linux: Because rebooting is for adding hardware.
