That's why I have set it to start ten minutes earlier :)

I agree that the clock is bad, but one of the reasons I started to use
VDR was because I had an extra old PC that could be put into use this way.
If I have to start buying a lot of new stuff, then I might as well
get a STB and complain and demand corrections when it doesn't work.
Now I just complain :)

OK, this is what I asked in the first mail:
"is it the watchdog causing the PANIC?"

And apparently it isn't the watchdog, but the log didn't show
anything else that was causing it.

I'll be going away for a month now but when I get back I'll see
if I can reproduce the PANIC somehow, just to figure out what
is happening.
