Crash with black screen/audio popping when recording two shows (1 Viewer)

I've been getting some crashes recently that I believe are caused by MP, due to all hardware testing out fine. It happens commonly when recording two shows at once or when playing back a recorded show. Whenever this occurs the screen goes black and the audio starts popping intermittently (no audio or video coming through), and I have to hard shut down my computer and restart. I've attached the logs after a restart when it happened, couldn't get it to reproduce in debug mode.

Tuner is an HDHomerun and computer was built about a month ago.

Steps to Reproduce:
Start MP, record two shows at once and eventually it'll crash and I'll have to hard reboot

    As MediaPortal runs only on user level it is not able to cause BSOD or freeze the PC completely.

    As the audio gets looping it is pointing to a really low level issue - my guess would be the tuner drivers as psisdecd.dll is listed in the event log side.

    It is really strange to have a crash while recording.
    You're saying only the TV service or MP is crashing, right? Not a BSOD?
    There are some older references to psisdecd.dll in the logs... but the HDHomeRun drivers are usually pretty robust.
    I wonder if something is overheating.
    Did you check your HDDs?
