I'm having the same (or similar) problem lately, but it seems to
happen only when using my second card.  Not every time, maybe 50% of
the time.  Sometimes it's just after starting the recording, less than
a minute in usually.  Sometimes the backend stops responding but the
recording finishes, and it doesn't start any new ones that were
scheduled.  Restarting the backend is enough to get it going again.

Seems it may be related to the 0.1.10-48.3_pre2_ck100zz driver, as it
looks like the only similarity.  My first card is  PVR-250, second is
an m179, still running 0.15.1 on FC1,

This could have started for me after upgrading the ivtv drivers, but
I'm not sure as my second card doesn't really get used that much and I
don't remember exactly when the problem started.

Just thought I would throw in another data point for comparison.
