Last night I had time to test the new (1.10) firmware more thoroughly with
my version 2 Nova-T Stick (dib7000P) and vdr box.
Good news first: no disconnects within the last 4 days, no i2c read/write
errors. But, channel switching is considerably slower than with 03-pre1
firmware, and - even worse - sometimes vdr hangs with black screen and
partially invalid lock flags after tuning. Fortunately there is no 
firmware 
crash, tuning to some other frequency immediately solves this issue.

I also want to thank you for your effort to improve the firmware, but for
me the 03-pre1 firmware is better than the new 1.10 one. (1 disconnect
within 6 weeks, but fast and reliable zapping).
