I tried mine out on Windows XP and Linux last night and this morning.
 I was able to capture ok for awhile but the longest clip I got was 30
minutes (and various smaller captures).  After a short time it just
stops capturing.  It doesn't lock up anything and it doesn't seem
overly hot.  After it stops like this I need to power cycle it to get
it capturing again.

I am not sure this is the same issue as the overheating/freezing
issue... what do you think?

Anyway I was happy to see the Linux driver working well enough to
capture even if I had to play it back on Windows...  Any Linux players
handling this stuff?  I tried myth trunk and mplayer and they weren't
too happy.
