Believe me, I do notice them. And they really only happen if a recording is totally stuck for at least one minute. >> I never had a restart due to EPG scan (at least not directly *), > > Me too (*) :-) > I have to disable EPG scan because i have 3 Cards but only a single LNB! > And, the "Single-LNB-Patch" did still not made its may into the release, > so if EPG scan starts after an unpredictable time it will try to > switch polarization, what fails and leads to "no a signal condition" > witch is not detected to the EPGscan.

Yesterday, I had my USB DVB-T connected, and forgot about it while a recording started on second DVB-S. First DVB-S was used for live TV, leaving just the DVB-T without antenna as free device. While 2 hours of recording, EPG scan permanently switched between three DVB-T transponders without receiving anything at all.

Maybe you suffer from strange tuning issues like me, and the 'blank screen' is just failure to tune anything? Have you tried experimenting with femon and signal levels? I have a similar 'blank screen' issue, but for me, the 'cure' is not a replay, but to force tuning the second DVB-S card to a channel. (Don't ask me why EPG scan on second DVB-S is not enough here.) After that, the tuner of the first card mysteriously reappears too.
