Those Telenor channels are encrypted, so I'm afraid I can't test them.
However, this may also be the reason for your problem. When VDR first switches
to an encrypted channel, it always does so in Transfer-Mode, so that it can
check whether the TS packets get decrypted. Once it knows that a channel can be
decrypted, it switches to it in direct live mode if you switch to it again.
While in Transfer-Mode, the high data rate stream is read from the FF card
and sent back to it for replay. I assume this is too much load for the FF card.
Try switching to the same channel again after some 15 seconds. Does it show
up ok then?
