That's the truth.  :)

I've solved a number of client's problems (not myth related, but system 
related) solely by cleaning the vents and adding fans additional fans to 
their systems.

In regard to the original poster, someone else posted this, but it is 
worth echoing: try different hardware with a fresh-clean OS and MythTV 
install using ATrpms (Jarod's guide is good to follow) or do a fresh 
install of something like MythDora.
