  Indeed, I was referring to the problem of loading the data to VDR. 
Tweaking the watchdog
timer looks like a dirty workaround to me - the value depending on 
amount of EPG data to
be loaded divided by the speed at which this data could be transferred 
to VDR (do we assume
loopback access, or ethernet? maybe wireless or WAN/VPN access?).

I have neither investigated the problem deeper yet (just found a way to 
split the EPG data into
parts), nor looked in the source code. Is it so difficult to convince 
the watchdog that while SVDR thread is busy it is actually doing useful
