I've got an HD-PVR running with no problems.  I had to downgrade the
firmware to 1.5.7 to get it to record without locking up, but it's got 3
weeks of uptime and 300+ shows recorded now with zero problems.  The
firmware is a known problem.  I also use firewire to change channels on the
STB.  I don't use the blaster.  I've read that firewire works much more
reliably than the blaster for changing channels.
