It is the card losing interrupts but this was fixed after 2.6.11 kernel
on my machine. I am running FC4 kernels now.
It is a xine problem because VDR will still record in this state. Now I
have xine showing NO SIGNAL after long periods of inactivity because
SetPlayMode: switched to 0. Just zapping to a channel wakes xine.
