i recently upgraded my vdr to version 1.6.0. Now my vdr restarts every
some minutes when recording:
Aug 4 12:17:21 video1 vdr:  frontend 1 timed out while tuning to
channel 1, tp 111836
Aug 4 12:17:43 video1 vdr:  ERROR: video data stream broken
Sometimes it is working, and sometimes it restartes every minute.
A friend of me had the same problem when recording ARD. He upgraded his
kernel to 2.6.26 and now it works for him. I also tried 22.214.171.124 and
126.96.36.199, but it does not work.
I don't think that it is a problem of temperature, because it also
happens suddenly after cold startup. The system is running now for some
years, with regular software-upgrades. I use Debian-Etch.
