I used to have this problem _all_ the time when i used a via based 
board.. constant weird problems like this..

since then i have moved to an old 667mhz BX based board and it works 
great.. also with the upgrades of IVTV and myth the problem just went away

dont know if thats much help unless you do indeed have a via board..
