Several users have reported in the vdrportal forum that the bandwidth problem
on FF cards became worse when switching from vdr 1.6 to 1.7
Even installing an additional budget card will not help, because since 1.6 vdr
does not always prefer the budget card for recordings.
A simple solution could be to install a DVB-T device and configure vdr to
always start on a DVB-T channel. But the suspendoutput plugin should do the
vdr mailing list
