I've had live tv crashing and freezing since upgrading to kernel-3.4.4-3 in Fedora 17 and now also kernel-3.4.4-5. I still have 3.4.3-1 installed thank goodness and can revert to that for trouble free TV viewing in Mythtv. I have an Hauppauge PVR150 that uses lirc_zilog module (to show an svideo stream from Sky box) and I have an Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT with kmod-nvidia module loaded. Neither of which gave me any issues in the previous kernel. It's the feed from the Hauppauge card that freezes. Recorded programs play back fine.
I can supply any info required but basically since it worked fine before and now doesn't, can anyone help pinpoint what changed between kernel 3.4.3-1 and 3.4.4-3 to cause this? I had a quick look at the kernel change log but since I'm no developer of any sort, I'm in the dark.
/var/log/messages below from when the video pauses.
