I have the same problem with 2.4.22 and DVB 1.0.1, I then tried 2.6.1
with the built in DVB drivers and mythbackend died within minutes of
viewing liveTV with a kernel BUG entry in the logs. I've switched back
to 2.4.22 with DVB1.0.1 for now because at least it'll run ofr a while
without locking the machine.
As you say, it seems to be when a program starts (or finsihes I havn't
worked out which) and I guess that is due to opening/closing the
drivers. I never have a crash halfway through a program being recorded.
Just wanted to let it be known that you aren't th only person with the
problem. I will get around to trying dvb-kernel from CVS at some point
and if I still have problems I'll go and metnion it on the linuxtv.org
lists but my last couple of posts have not probuced any useful responses.
