Don't buy this card if you want to use it in a permanent (i.e. vdr)

And yes this still happens with *any* kernel version (2.6.20 - 21.5) +
even the experimental mercurial tree out there...
Well our experience with the T500 differs to yours. We have multiple T500's
in multiple 'permanent' vdr installations that are running 24/7. We don't
see disconnects under Kubuntu 7.04.
The only area where I can say we have had some issues with the T500 is
related to its ability to hold onto a signal in some situations. It seems
more sensitive to transmission quality/strength than other cards or external
usb DVB devices we have tested. But in our experience these have been
relatively minor issues.
All I can say is that is our experience.
