	Bingo!

	I had the same problem a few years back with
two TwinHan VisionPlus cards and a 7200RPM drive
in a small case (200W PSU). All was fine for 6mths,
then one started to misbehave.

	Tried everything. Removing either card would
give me a working setup. Bought a bigger PSU and
case, and they have been rock solid ever since.

	I am guessing that part of the tuner on the card
ages a little and is affected by marginal 12V power.
Try getting a PSU with separate 12V regulation.
