Hi,

I have here an old VDR system running and my DVB-S cards are stopping to 
work now (VDR 1.6 and 2xDVB-S cards).
It starts with a lot of distortions and then they stops to record 
completely. I have only 0 minute records for my new timers.

In the log file I have:
Jul  6 14:25:24 video vdr: [10063] ERROR: video data stream broken
Jul  6 14:25:31 video vdr: [19846] ERROR: video data stream broken
Jul  6 14:25:55 video vdr: [10063] ERROR: video data stream broken
Jul  6 14:26:02 video vdr: [19846] ERROR: video data stream broken
Jul  6 14:26:26 video vdr: [10063] ERROR: video data stream broken

If VDR records on the second DVB card everything is fine.

I'm quite sure that this a hardware issue.
The cards I habe installed currently are:
02:07.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
02:09.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)

Which are good cards to replace them?

Best regards,
Matthias
