[vdr] VDSB since 1.3.37?

I have a related phenomenon since I updated from VDR 1.3.34 (I think it 
was this version) to VDR 1.3.36. With previous versions, I had 
absolutely no problems when switching to Sat.1 and ProSieben from a 
non-DD-channel. Now, I often see heavy distortions/blocking when 
switching to one of those both channels. Sometimes, the blocks don´t 
disappear and the image can´t be watched. Sometimes it helps to switch 
back to the channel I previously was watching, if it doesn´t, I have to 
restart VDR which also reloads the drivers. My channel´s order: 3 - BR, 
4 - Sat.1, 5 - RTL, 6 - ProSieben...
I use a Nexus and one Nova-S on SuSE 9.1 with quite outdated drivers 
(from beginning 2005) - but they previously worked without problems. I 
also did not change the firmware when updating the VDR - that´s why I 
also think that the new bugs are VDR related, despite of the progress in 
driver, firmware and kernel development. I can´t promise that one of the 
new compiled plugins and patches might have introduce the problem, but I 
don´t think so as this error looks familiar to me (had this ages before 
with VDR 1.2.x and early VDR 1.3.x versions).

I recently planned to upgrade to a newer kernel (including new drivers), 
but reading all the complaints concerning kernels >2.6.12 and buffer 
overflows, I want to wait until those things are fixed.
