Sorry for the late reply... This problem could be caused by the EIT (Event
Information Table - basically the TV listings) being picked up from your
digital TV in Myth. I had the same issue where the scanning caused my TV
card to lock up and only unloading and reloading the modules (or rebooting)
would fix the issue.  You can tell if this is the problem by disabling the
EIT scanning in the MythTV setup. parker1.co.uk details how to use XMLTV to
get the TV listings instead.
