Thought I should give an update now that I've had a chance to address my problem.
I finally found the time to install the latest ivtv RPM package (and ended up
upgrading everything else outdated while at it!).
A test run this evening similar to the one I reported in this thread earlier went
off with flying colors. Three concurrent OTA programs captured with only a single
dma error message in /var/log/messages!
Captured programs play without problems.
iostat wsec/s dropped from 17K to 4K, in round figures.
top reported load averages dropped from nearly 5 to under 0.5, and now I have > 90% idle time.
The cure was much cheaper than adding disks to create a RAID stripe or adding
a PCI/PCI-e disk drive controller.
I can heartily recommend upgrading from version x to version 0.10.3-129.
Got a little couch potato?
