At the moment:

25956 vdr       20   0  520m 213m 5136 S   0.7 11.3  28:27.27 vdr

After a restart:

24585 vdr       20   0  257m  43m 5316 S   0.0  2.3   0:00.88 vdr

It starts to have a noticeable impact on the box's general performance
when %MEM reaches 50% IME.

I'll run top for longer like you suggest, then try all plugins disabled
and with DVB-T and DVB-S lines removed from channels.conf in turn.
