Hmmm...I've got one of these and I've never seen it disconnect yet
(a few months so far...fingers crossed!).

When I've seen USB disconnections with two USB2 Nova-T devices, I was
getting things like /dev/dvb/adapter0, /dev/dvb/adapter2,
/dev/dvb/adapter3, i.e. adapter1 missing from where one of them had
been originally before disconnecting and then being reassigned as
adapter3! in this situation, vdr only sees the first DVB device
because it starts at adapter0 and stops counting when the next number
doesn't exist.

Cheers,

Laz
