Hello Hans,

For the freeze, you can simply delete the bttv_reset_audio() in 
bttv_init_card2(), bttv_cards.c. You would need the i2c timeout fix [1] 
also, for fixing the i2c timeouts too. But with that you need to use the 
updated dst.c also !

There have been a lot of fixes that went into dst, so it would be better 
that you update to the latest version.
Anyway, if you don't want to update to the latest CVS/ kernel, you can 
most probably delete the existing dst* (only dst* !) in the bt8xx/ 
directory and update them with the ones in CVS. That would still leave 
you with 2.6.11.x
