Teemu, I had a similar problem with budget Freecom / WT-220U USB stick tuners. I usually had to swap multiplex/transponder to get them to re-tune reliably. I observed that if they lost tuning, vdr made them re-try (which I saw in the log) but eventually would bomb out if it couldn't tune, which is maybe what you're seeing?
Originally I logged it as a DVB driver bug, but the maintainer said it was an application bug. I found the following, which requires you to patch/rebuild vdr from source. Basically it just adds a small delay to the tuning process, and it works 100% for me. I had to do this on 1.4.7 and carried it over in 1.6.0 also - so no, vanilla 1.6 won't help you. It would be good if something equivalent was in vanilla VDR but I suppose it slows some systems by a fraction of a second when tuning. Perhaps a "budget card" option? http://www.vdr-portal.de/board/thread.php?postid=639048 The actual patch is at http://tafe.unkelhaeusser.de/vdr/dvbdevice.c.patch HTH _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
