[vdr] vdr-1.3.39: VDR extremely sluggish

Hello,

I want to report a problem with VDR when a recording is tried while no
signal is available.

Last week a small local "blizzard" covered my dish with snow so I lost
the sat signal.

When VDR started a recording in this situation, its response to the RC
became extremely sluggish with several seconds delay between a RC key
press and the reaction. Whe the "recording" finally terminated, the
response times became normal again. The sat signal was still unavailable.

The CPU load stayed low (nearly 0) in this situation, and no RC keys got
lost.

This happened with VDR 1.3.39 with jummplay patch applied, Kernel 2.6.15
and v4l-dvb CVS drivers from 3.1.2006. I did not try a vanilla VDR but
can do this if required.

I have attached a syslog excerpt.

Wolfgang
