Well, maybe a second DVB card fixes the problem, but this surely wasn't
what helped me. When I started with VDR half a year ago with one FF card,
I had this trouble with timers/mplayer but then I changed some stuff
during the time (settings, DVB drivers, newer mplayer version etc.) the
problem was gone for good for months now. And I bought a second DVB card
just two weeks ago. :)

Hmm I really thought it had something to do with anything I changed within
VDR's DVB settings.
