OK, time for an AOL moment: me too.
Except, I have 0.24.x still (with my PVR-350), and I only ever use it
(the card) for s-video in: it's not configured for TV (and wouldn't work
now, anyway, as all our analogue channels have been turned off).
Maybe once a month I get a stuffed recording like that (my flashing strip
*seems* to be a distorted checker board pattern), and the problem lasts for
the whole recording. I've never noticed it run into another (back-to-back)
recording, but that situation may not have ever occurred.
I had initially thought it was my satellite box, but I've come to believe
it's my card (or, at least, PVR-based), and had just thought it was starting
to go (so I'm going to get a new s-video card for the new box I'm building up).
It hasn't always done it, but I couldn't say it started after a Myth
