After watching tv for various amounts of time, about 15-60 minutes, the entire screen gets scambled. A computer restart solves the problem. Only happens when watching tv in mediaportal, I can do both cpu/graphics heavy tasks without anything happening.

You can still make out MP behind the network of squares all over the screen, and its still working. No hangups. Just resarting MP doesnt help, a computer reboot is neccesary.

Anyone got an idea what could be wrong?

    That sounds like a problem with your video card or video driver - as it affects the whole screen, not just MP?

    Are you using the latest video card driver?

    And the latest BIOS on your motherboard?
