I cannot confirm that. My VDR always had strange tuning problems that
are caused by mysterious hardware problems (including some time on VDR
1.4.7), so having no signal on DVB-S is not un-typical for my system. I
also had no issues while experimenting with DVB-T - which typically
includes having no signal. ;)
I never had a restart due to EPG scan (at least not directly *), and a
missing signal for live viewing never caused more than a black screen. I
never had ARM crashes because of signal quality. Restarts only happened
for me if a recording got no signal.
(* I had some times where tuning card 1 to channel X because of EPG scan
would cause the recording card 0 to loose signal)
