Dunno. If you were able to capture a 1 hour show, it sounds like you're
not being bit. But the very nature of this bug is that it occurs
randomly. More like a race condition that is hard to find than a
easily reproduceable/triggerable bug..
Some folks have found that if they turn off dma on their disks, the
problems get better or go away entirely. For me, it didn't matter how I
had any dma-capable device configured in the system. it croaked just by
'cat /dev/video0 > /dev/video16' - after 5 to 15 minutes of enc/dec..
Some folks said that it happened rarely, but that it did happen.. So..
as a previous poster said, ymmv... :)
