Doesn't sound like you are what I would call totally locked up, sounds more 
like the F/E is locked. Can you ssh in from elsewhere on your network? You 
could see what's happening, and do a clean reboot.

Your logs seem to indicate you may be using the "NV" driver, if you have an 
nVidia card I'd advise using their drivers, unless you have some reason to 
not do that. Not that the nv driver causes lockups, it just doesn't work very 
well, but it couldn't hurt to try the nVidia drivers.

Is the machine stable when running non-Myth applications?

What is your capture hardware?
