Hi,

I use two Cinergy 1200 DVB-C MK3 for quite a long time and had no 
problems so far. Now I switched to a new mainboard (Asus m4n78 pro) and 
after some time, the dvb-c cards aren't usable anymore. This can be 
triggered by heavy IO.
On both mainboards I use Ubuntu 9.04 with the same kernel version 
(2.6.28-13-generic, also tested with 2.6.28-14-server). While running 
vdr I see the following in syslog:

Jul 11 12:29:52 bowser vdr: [4678] frontend 0 lost lock on channel 6, tp 121

Using lspci I see the following:

01:05.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev ff) 
(prog-if ff)
        !!! Unknown header type 7f
        Kernel driver in use: budget_av

01:07.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev ff) 
(prog-if ff)
        !!! Unknown header type 7f
        Kernel driver in use: budget_av

Before the problem the lspci output looked like this:

01:06.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: TERRATEC Electronic GmbH Device 1176
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
        Memory at faeffc00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]
        Kernel driver in use: budget_av
        Kernel modules: budget-av

01:07.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: TERRATEC Electronic GmbH Device 1176
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 19
        Memory at faeff800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]
        Kernel driver in use: budget_av
        Kernel modules: budget-av

Searching on google I found something about adjusting pci-latencies to 
64, I already tried that, but it didn't help. I updated the BIOS to the 
latest version, but that didn't help either.

Any ideas?

Matthias
