[linux-dvb] Twinhan Alpha driver problem - kernel 2.6.13

Hi all,

I am using kernel 2.6.13 vanilla (latest stable from kernel.org) with 1x 
Hauppauge Nova CI DVB-S, 1x Avermedia 761 DVB-T and 2x
TwinHan Aplha USB DVB-T sticks.

The device drivers load fine, all frontends register. As soon as an 
application (eg. tzap and/or VDR) is started, the machine
stops responding. Only a powercycle fixes it. I have logging enabled for 
the dvb-usb driver but can find no syslog entries for
this.
This problem also occured with 2.6.12.5 patched with the dvb patch.

Note that using only one Twinhan together with the other 2 DVB cards 
works fine.

Note the TwinHan sticks were tried both on one USB and on
seperate USB hubs with the same result. I remember someone talking about 
excessiver power requirements (eg. more than the USB spec) for these USB 
sticks.


Any suggestions ?

Regards
