That is weird. I had this problem for a while, and I also have a TV
card (analog). It never occurred to me that it might have something to
do with the card. My TV card uses an SAA7130 chip.
But I don't seem to suffer from this problem anymore. I'd say for a
month or so now. Might have something to do with switching from kernel
2.6.34 to 2.6.35.
