Could you give some more details about the flags you pass to ivtv. I've
been getting 0 length files after the myth box has been on for a while. I
assumed it was just a bug in the ivtv driver. Unloading it, and loading it
again usually fixes it temporarily.
If there's an actual fix for the problem, I'd love to hear it.
