[vdr] DVB-card or vdr stops receiving?

I have newly istalled Ubuntu 8.04 with ubuntu packaged vdr
1.6.0. Output is with libxineoutput-plugin. 

System works fine, but after some time (many hours, don't know how
many) system stops receiving. Setting 'Min. User inactivity' is set to
zero, so system won't say anything about shutting down. It just stops
receiving, and selcting channel doesn't show any program. If there is
some timer for recording, on timer system does restart, and most
likely reloads DVB card drivers, and everything works. Also doing
restart from menu salvages system. 

System has two DVB cards, one for DVB-C (Terratec Cynergy 1200C) (not
in use now, but used in final destination) and one DVB-T (Technisat
SkyStar2) for testing in my place.

Any idea what might be reason for this? How to solve problem?
