Jouni allready told me to try NO_EVENTID = 1 in vdradmind.conf.
I've set it and yet so far everything has been working as it should (for a 
few days).

I was also suspecting EPG data since in many occations there have been talk 
about finnins EPG being corrupted or badly set up.

I've had problems in all channels (YLE1/2, MTV3/Nelonen/Subtv)

Maybe I am just a heavy user since I have 62 autotimers at present :) Few of 
those is actually not valid anymore but it leaves some 50+ autotimers.
