Running WinTV card
could you please check which version of XFree86 you have running on
Which Graphic card do you have in your machine?
bttv + DRI seem not to play together with some cards like ATI Rage128.
The linux box just freezes. It's either a hardware problem or a bug
somewhere in DRI (either kernel or xfree86).
The only workaround is to turn off DRI.

are you using Nvidia driver from NVIDIA? if yes, it could cause such
problem. I have Nvidia GeForce4 and it works fine for me with the
driver including in XFree86.
Yes, I'm using the driver from Nvidia. Let me see how the XFree86
it works for me with driver included in XFree86
