Are you seeing hard lockups of your machine?

I have 2 250's and every now and then, I get just that.  Changing to an
nVIDIA chipset motherboard, and running CVS has made it much better, but
there are times the thing locks so hard I have to power-cycle it.

Do you, or anyone, have any clues?  It only happens while watching LiveTV,
it has happened even if I have paused playback for 30 seconds to buffer
things up as someone suggested...it happened last night, and I had an SSH
seesion open to the machine that went away as well.

Is there anything that can be logged from the IVTV driver to get some clues
for driver h4ax0r 3733tz to debug?
