FYI - I had the same ivtv dma timeout issue with my PVR-150, but I
didn't want to disable cool n quiet because my combined fe/be is in
the living room.  Anything that reduces noise and saves power is
important to me.

I solved the issue by upgrading to mythbuntu 11.04.  It has a newer
kernel and ivtv driver which handle the dma issue better.  No DMA
timeout issues since the upgrade.
