Btw. is there an easy way to see this from the logs because my vdr box is situated in a difficult place where I can easily get only by ssh?

#hdparm -d /dev/hda

To enable it, use

#hdparm -d 1 /dev/hda
This does not seem to work with sata drives. It gives
hdparm -d 1 /dev/sda

Like you, I am cursed by the VIA chipset, but luckily I haven't experienced
any DMA lockups, which have been reported for many generations of VIA
hardware.  Every now and then, the system must be completely powered off,
because something apparently in the PCI controller gets misconfigured so
badly that Linux panics or hangs at boot.  The system reset or soft
power-off won't help in this situation.  Also, the system must be rebooted
in order for nvram-wakeup to work, and Wake-on-LAN often ceases to work.
This is an Intel Celeron 900 MHz on an MSI 694T Pro motherboard:

I have nvram-installed and it shuts down the box every night.
