Dear List,

since some time I am experiencing a strange error during the boot of my 
vdr. After the driver was loaded and vdr starts, the live picture 
briefly appears, and then diappears with the funny pattern from driver 
loading reappearing. After a while the screen goes black. The OSD is 
fully functional and after a reload of the drivers  and restart of vdr 
everything works fine.

When i look into the syslog, I find the following:

I am running vdr 1.3.32 (although this phenomenon was observed with 
1.3.15 too) with linux-dvb.2004-12-26 on a siemens 1.3 card.
The kernel is 2.4.18 in a suse system (8.0)

Anyone seen this before (I have seen a few posts in google, but no ideas)

Best Regards,
Christoph-
