You might want to check dynamite plugin. If you have different drivers

If you just want to kick out that tuner until the next reboot (or

That's true for devices which deliver no data for a while in the GetTSPacket method. But 
if it's the epg-scan, just the demux device is used (if I'm right). Then the 
"GetTSWatchdog" won't be triggered.

As much as I like the EPG scan, I usually have it turned off because
I think the driver gets rather unstable when VDR often switches
channels and maybe hits transponders that don't carry any signal.
What's especially unstable is the CAM situation. I have two CAMs
in my VDR (connected to budget cards) and quite often the connection
to the CAMs is lost, to a point where not even a CAM reset (from the
Setup/CAM menu) helps any more. I have to pull the CAM, wait a few seconds
and then insert it again. When the driver is in such an unstable state,
a recording on that device will usually fail, and VDR performs an
"emergency exit".

fyi, looking in the logs, this does seem to happen whilst VDR is
rapidly switching between transponders presumably during an EPG scan
or whilst checking for new channels/transponders.
