I had an entertaining problem with one of those silicon labs pci sata 
controllers that has a bug in the kernel driver when used with via 
motherboards.  It was silently corrupting files, and the thing it did to tip 
me off was to start inserting end-of-file markers in the middle of files, so 
watching something would just stop with a "you have come to the end of " etc.  
But I was able to use "edit recording" to skip past them.

Just a thought.
