As I said in my reply to Tony, I do not need to reload my drivers. After 
reloading vdr, everything works ok. So it seems more of the EPG timeout 
problem you mentioned in your other post.

No, I don't need to reload, and as far as I know, temperature is very low 
inside the case. I've tried it on the back of the card, but I've never felt 
high temperature there.
