No lockup on my digibox (1 FF dvb-t) using 2.6.9-gentoo-r13, but if I do the
1) Make a timer for a show
2) Playback a recording when vdr is not yet recording
3) When recording starts, the screen goes black, but sound and even
dvb-subtitles plugin give still output.
4) Stop playback, restart it and no problems unless another recording
starts during playback again...
Though, this problem I have been having with my current vdr 1.3.18 +
1) Watch a channel that needs dvb-subtitles
2) recording starts for another channel that is not in the same
3) vdr doesn't switch to the correct channel, but records happily the
channel that I was watching

Sounds like I'm happy that I don't get the lockup, but the black screen
is still annoying...
