My system does similar (FC5, Nvidia 9742 and previously 8776, ivtv
0.8.2 w/2 PVR-250s, latest mythtv from atrpms). It's been locking up
for a while. When my system locks up, the computer responds to network
commands (ping, can start a ssh session but never get a prompt), but
it seems that any disk IO gets stuck as I can't get a shell. Seems to
happen once a week or so.
