I have the original FusionHDTV5 Gold, and also the FusionHDTV5 RT Gold.
(each in a different machine) I have never seen anything like this on
any of my hardware.

I have a bunch of other cards based on the cx2388x, including:

FusionHDTV3 Gold-T, KWorld HardwareMpegTvXpert, and some others....
These pci_abort messages never happen to me.

Do you have another motherboard that you can try?  It sounds to me like
this problem is specific to your platform.
