I have used to have problems for watching some "pretty weak signal" DVB-T
channels also which seemed always lost the log after 5 minute usage, until 
vdr killed and restarted itself. The problem went away for me after I 
changed from the vdr settings the EPG scan mode to "newer" or something 
like that.
(I am not near to my vdr at the moment, so I can not check the exact 
location and text for this menu in the vdr.)

Can you test, whether the same thing could help also you?

I am running 2 card system
- hauppauge hvr-1300
 	dvb-t connected
- hauppauge hvr-4000
 	dvb-s connected
 	dvb-t not connected because vdr does not support using both the 
dvb-s and t from the hvr-4000.
