I had terrible problems with MSI Digivox duos (and the Kworld 
equivalent) using the AF9015 chip recently. Got the updated firmware etc 
but suffered awful reliability. Ended up having to shutdown the backend 
for 30 seconds, often twice a day. By the end I was missing 60% of my 
scheduled recordings.

Not what you want to hear I know, but I ended up getting a european HDHR 
from ebay and haven't looked back. It really does just work.
