If you can read data just fine and it doesn't lock when not using
xine-hd or tvtime then it's not likely at all to be the pchdtv driver.
Check your logs after the reboot, anything odd in them?  What kernel are
you using?  What versions of tvtime, xine-hd?  What happens if you try
to start xine-hd or tvtime without the pchdtv card installed, or just
rmmod the driver before you start them, what happens?  My /guess/ is
it's more video card related, rather than the pchdtv driver causing the
locking.  What video card, driver, and X server are you using?
