It seems the cause of the problem has been located by Alex Pipelka.

The vdr freezes occurs when obtaining the signal strength/quality
with functions SignalStrength() and/or SignalQuality()
and when non-busy adapter has tunining issues
(frontend x/x timed out while tuning to channel ...).
It occurs only on multi adapters systems (one adapter is doing
EIT scan and the other is used, eg for a live-tv).

Guys, any thoughts on this?
I think it may be even kernel/drivers related issue.
