    Same problem here...

    I thought it was an incompatibility between PVR500-cards and Via Kt chipsets. I'm using an Asus A7V266-E. But apparently this is not the case since your mb has a nvidia chipset.

    Changing the PCI latency time helped a little bit (search the forum for "PCI latency") but it's far away from being stable :-(

    Go back to CVS from 21/1-2006, that is the only CVS that works for me currently. I have a PVR 150 and a 350 and this is the latest CVS I can use without TimeShift freezing or computer crashes.

    It is the same on two of my machines right now, so it is not hardware related, it must be with the latest CVS.
