I've been using the PVR-350 for tv-out for about 3 months now. 
Currently I'm using ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck71d.  The URL is below.  There 
seems to be some consensus on the ivtv mailing list that this is the 
most stable of the CK patches.  It's been working well for me.  I 
haven't restarted for a couple weeks and that was for other reasons. 
They are working hard to release a 0.1.10-pre3 driver this week which 
should be quite stable.
