Oh, that would be wonderful !
It's only my ff card that crashes. I'm running vdr inside a domU
(unfortunatly atm it's running 2.6.18). And after a while the firmware
doesn't get loaded anymore => "saa7146_vv: saa7146_vv_init(): out of
memory. aborting." (iirc, it's an old bug resolved in recent kernels)

By the way, does the budget patch fix the crashing of FF cards ?
(I know it's not a fix, since i'm only using software decoders i might
consider the modification if it prevents the ff from crashing)
