I have one budget card (Airstar2 DVB-T) and I had exactly the same
The picture disappeared always after an EPG scan - and never came back.
I had to restart VDR to get the picture again.
When I set "EPGScanTimeout = 0", it does not happen any more.
I do not know how this helps, but it does it for me.
