Well i think the power supply and dvb-t card are working correctly and i 
don't see any problems. I have changed my motherboard from asus a7v880 
to abit nf7-s2g and than the problems began. The card is working 
sporadically and that is worst which can happen because it is not 
deterministic for me from where the errors occures. My card is now 
working at the moment but if i switch off the pc maybe the next reboot 
will give me an error. Even bios changes haven't succeeded in anything.
So i don't know what is causing the problem in detail. My temperatures 
are quite low here so i wouldn't say it's a heat problem, the power 
supply is a bequiet 350W, it is a very good one and 350W for my 
athlon-xp is more than enough. I am thinking that it's a problem of the 
board/bios but i don't understand why the card works sporadically, even 
though everything else works as expected. If anyone has an idea or a 
similar problem it would be nice to hear. Maybe i should consider to 
change the board, but i don't have the money for this now.
