I highly suggest moving from the homebrew serial IR blaster to the HDPVR
built in IR blaster. I have the exact same setup, and had the exact
same problems. I finally caught it live and saw that LIRC was throwing
some sort of error (sorry don't recall the details). I switched over
the HVPVR IR blaster as a shot in the dark, and haven't had a lock-up
since (over two months now).
