yes, and no ... thing is, this is something which annoys
me for some time now, and maybe I dig into it to find a
better solution ...
for some reason channel A fails because of a thunderstorm
or a covered lnc (think bird) or one of several DVB cards
have a problem with the reception (cable unplugged, wrong
diseqc commands issued or whatever), which leads to a vdr
which is restarting every 10-15 seconds, and all other
receptions will be affected ...
IMHO that should be handled more gracefully ...
