Further investigation reveals ringbuffer overflows reported in syslog as soon as recording starts.

I can put some trace into the code as Klaus has suggested. Assuming that what I am experiencing with NTFS is another manifestation of the problem Gunter is seeing with NFS - What would be useful?

Mine is also a clean 1.7.4 install. Note that I am using the latest Liplianin drivers with two patches applied - av7110_ts_replay_1.diff and av7110_v4ldvb_api5_audiobuff_test_1.diff applied.
