By locks up I mean, that when I select the program guide, sometimes it
only paints a portion of it, typically 1/4 or 3/4 of the screen.  The
box is hard locked.  The box is totally locked up.  Cannot ssh into box,
does not respond to ping.  The only solution is to hard reset it.  Then
I have to restart the backend because it tells me that the card is still
in use.

This only happens when bringing up the guide, or recording options from
within the guide, or when selecting a program to watch thus dismissing
the guide.

It seems to happen most frequently when it is currently on a HD channel,
and has only happened twice with the new motherboard.  With the old
motherboard, this would happen ~30% of the time.
