[mythtv-users] pvr-350 tv-out hanging in live tv

I am using kernel 2.6.8-1 and I had pretty the same problem with the
ivtv-driver. But since I have patched my kernel to use software suspend
2 the tv-out has never been hanging again. The software suspend patch
breaks the ivtv code, so you have to adapt it (I had to change 2 lines
in the driver source code). 

Second problem:
Which Xserver do you use? 
I really recommend ivtvdev_drv_o. You will find it in the utils
directory of ivtv.
Do you have DMA enabled on your DVD-Drive?
Do you have DMA enabled on your Harddisk?
