Well our experience with the T500 differs to yours. We have multiple T500's
in multiple 'permanent' vdr installations that are running 24/7. We don't
see disconnects under Kubuntu 7.04.

The only area where I can say we have had some issues with the T500 is
related to its ability to hold onto a signal in some situations. It seems
more sensitive to transmission quality/strength than other cards or external
usb DVB devices we have tested. But in our experience these have been
relatively minor issues.

All I can say is that is our experience.
