[mythtv-users] Weird Freezing Problem - Hopefully My Last Problem

Hi all,

I'm hoping that this is the last question I'll have to pose to the list.

I'm noticing a weird freezing happening on my system.  It seems to happen when I
watch live TV.  For some reason, out of the blue, the system will freeze up and the
TV will actually appear as though it's a broken record, replaying a few frames over
and over.

There's no way to do anything else on the system - I can't change to a terminal
window, nor can I telnet/ssh into the system to kill the process.  Basically, a hard
reboot is required.

Once the system comes back up, there's nothing in the syslog or myth log to indicate
there was a problem at the time it freezes up.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Quickly, my setup is as follows:

- ivtv 0.1.9.
- AMD XP 3200+, 1 GB RAM, 1 x 120 GB IDE drive, 2 x 120 GB S-ATA drives striped
together (this is where my recording data goes)
- Myth 0.16

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
