Ah, you do? ;-)

Is it a single or multi card system?
I assume it's a single card?

If it is a multi card system, when does it start?
almost "immediately" or after 1 or 2 h?

I could not, VDR reprints very fast the line 
"channel not available" on the OSD.

Have you locked all HDTV channels with an "non existing CA"-ID?

>The only solution I found is restarting VDR.

ACK, but is assume in your case "simply" one of the drivers died.

I only found 2 "switch to channel"...
