I just bought a new pci usb card, and all my bulk failures have gone away.
Googling around the net, a card based on the ALI chips seem to exhibit lots of
problems that this failure shows up.
My new card had a VIA chip, and since installing it this morning I haven't had
any such problems. Still need to make sure my signal is top notch. I can
easily tune to the BBC channels, but the ITV ones need almost no segments of
co-ax, and a small amplifier to get to work - despite being so close the the
powerful Crystal Palace.
