Hello all,

I am currently facing a problem with a TechnoTrend FullFeatured DVB-T card.

I searched the web and several mailing lists and found some reports about the same issue,
but I did not get the point, what the solution is.

I am using the linvdr.org distribution, version 0.7 from www.linvdr.org.
>From chapter Others under http://linvdr.org/projects/linvdr/index.en.php you can see
that this is using "DVB driver CVS 2004-12-03".

In order to measure my antenna signal I activated the "femon" plugin, by this I am getting
the following output (for me its unclear whether the crash is related to femon usage):
