I'm having this same problem with my PVR-500 cards. I have tried all
three of my cards and see the same symptoms on each. Once the card is
recording it will do so forever without any problem but changing
channels or starting a new recording I will frequently see the
ivtv0: Encoder has died : ivtv_serialized_open
error message. Sometimes the firmware will successfully reload but most
often even if the driver think that the reload was successful the
recording is blank or corrupt.
I do not pretend to understand how the ivtv driver works or what causes
this error message but is there any thing I can do to try to track down
what is causing this?
