The PVR 350 is picky about it's PCI interface. It crashed no matter what
slot I had it in when I was running an intel D815EEA2 motherboard. So
I bought a new board, and now it crashes if I put it in the last slot, 
but the
other two slots are fine. I now have 30+ day uptimes. It only goes down
for extended power outages, kernel upgrades, etc...

Bottom line: Try a different PCI slot. If that doesn't work, get a newer
motherboard (not VIA though). If it still crashes, make sure you try all
slots on the new board. If it still crashes then you're unlucky and you've
got 2 incompatible boards. It's not the drivers fault.
