Default Hard lockup with xawtv@overlay mode

Hi

I'm having system lockup after few minutes using xawtv in overlay mode and doing some bacground I/O like md5sum /home/user/*. I have pinnacle pctv rave tuner, geforce 2mx and msi-kt266pro2 mb with 768M ram.

It works ok in grabdisplay mode (although jerky and cpu intensive). So far I have no idea if this is kernel, nvidia driver or hardware problem.
I'm interested if anybody with nvidia card and bttv compatible tuner has similar problems?

regards

yes,

putting Load 'v4l' into XF86Config solved the hangup problem for me... only problem: xawtc sucks with v4l loaded, the solution: xawdecode, it even reads xawtvrc...

I've done that before with no luck. My friend with same geforce card tried overlay mode and he has no problems, so I suspect my msi-kt266pro2 mb or via vt8233 chipset is the cause.
