Could possibly be that your board is enabling the athlon power saving bit 
by default. Try disabling it with athcool. You'll need acpi support for 
this.

The nebula has an analogue composite input though. You won't find it in 
many other cards. However if I was now getting a dvb-t card knowing what I 
know now about these things (unlike when I should've known a year ago) I'd 
just go with some hi-speed usb2.0 box instead. At least those don't have 
the funky irq problems (but you'll probably get some other driver problems 
in trade).
