I'd suspect RAM first; random reboots tend to be that or hard drive issues with *nix systems.

I ran the Harry Potter books through a spell checker; none of those spells should work.

I built this last weekend and set up recordings.  The system stayed up for 5 
days and recorded about 15 shows.  When I play any show back, the system 
spontaneously reboots anywhere from 1-5 minutes into the show.  Top tells me 
the system is bored and is not swapping during playback.  I see no smoking 
guns in these logs:

Where should I look for clues next?
