The problem appeared with "Tagesschau" on ARD. Not every recording on ARD or ZDF has buffer problems, but when it is live and maybe even 16:9, it is very likely that it happens. And there is no chance to do an additional recording on the same transponder without problems.

I always use very recent drivers from hg, never older than 3 weeks.  I even patched it with the performance + refactoring patches

from Oliver ("UFO") which seems to make it a little bit better.

F12623 ? where do you get it from? has it ever been released officially? I remember that Werner mentioned F12623 in vdrportal in June, but the last version which was posted there is F22623 from May
