I've had 3 PVR-150's all fail on me the same way. In my case though it was
after a reboot the RF input would just capture static. After a couple more
reboots I can normally get it to work again, unfortunatly with all 3 cards
in the same system, I coiuld never get all of them to work together. I ended
up just switching to the svideo input on all of them and I've had no
problems since. Not that this helps you at all, but I'd at least throw it
out there. :-D
