The problem recurred with 2.6.22 and the bleeding edge DVB drivers. I
went ahead and built a 2.6.24 kernel with the bleeding edge DVB
drivers. So far, no errors in dmesg and all recordings are happening.
FWIW, I also upgraded to the latest release of the nVidia drivers:
NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 169.09
