I've installed 2 eHD's. Working for hours daily without problems, but huge 
patching of vdr and reelbox plugin (and skinreel3 plugin) is necessary.

Try to look at http://www.cssf.cz/showthread.php?t=34104 - there is script and 
patches, also some howto's - but in Czech. It was written for vdr-1.7.5, but 
I'm now using it with vdr-1.7.7 without problems.

The problems you are talking about could also be due to problems in TS stream 
as reelbox plugin don't test too much incoming data. Distorted data could 
cause hangup of eHD. 

If you use vdr-sc update to latest version from mercurial, it could help on 
some channels.
