I fightet any times ago with the same problem.
eHD was not usable.

In my case, i found a solution in vdrportal.de for the dvb card
budget-core driver.

I am load now the budget-core driver with a bigger bufsize,
after this eHD work perfektly, no freez video anymore.

On gentoo im added to /etc/modrobe.d/budget-core{.conf}

options budget_core bufsize=1410

update-modules --force, reload module budged-core or reboot

good luck
