Thank you very much!
That is exactly the problem. I wondered all the last weeks why there
were every now and then distortions in the recordings - well and now it
obviously broke down at last.
I got told something about a broken LNBP16+Elko that provides the power
for the F-connector - but I don´t think I am able to replace it without
damaging the card.
Well, I will have to invest something at last.
