There are known problems with certain on-board SATA controllers (Silicon Image I think) and their impact on DVB cards. 

(eg see: http://www.nebula-electronics.com/information/DigiTVPCI.htm under the Restrictions section).

This caused me lots of problems when first setting up a dedicated box. >From memory my mobo had 2 SATA controllers and switching to the non-SI controller fixed all the glitches.
