Ben -

Have you tried turning it off and on again? Seriously!

The firmware only gets copied to the TV card when the card is in a "cold"
state. To get into a cold state you have to power down for a while - at
least a few seconds. Just rebooting won't do it. Your card may have
out-of-date firmware loaded on it.

The other day, I shut down my PC, removed the power cord (just to be sure)
and went to bed. In the morning I powered up again, and Myth has now been
running without any problems *all year*!
