Well, at least I will re-enable (or reverse-patch) this feature back 
into my VDR, as it saved many recordings for me. This fallback is only 
triggered if a scheduled recording is getting not a single byte of data 
for at least one minute, so there's IMHO something seriously wrong about 
it. And in many cases, a clean restart fixes this for me - because for 
me its usually a malfunction of the tuner / multiswitch communication, 
and a power down / power up of all LNB power helps.
