Given the orphaned inodes, it would appear there was filesystem
corruption.  If the capture card is having hardware trouble, that
suggests it might be the cause of memory or I/O failure that may
lead to such things.  At least to my simple way of thinking.

My reason for suspecting a hardware failure in the capture card is
that a couple of times in the past, it had stopped working and my
fix each time was a shutdown and restart.  Not very scientific
of course.
