I think I have the same problem. The patch did not help for me.

I moved my good working 2 card (1 FF DVB-s, 1 nova DVB-s) System (2.4 Kernel,
vdr 1.2.6) to another computer (Suse 9.3 with dvd drivers in that kernel, vdr
1.3.30). After a short time (some min to some hours) I
get a heavily distorted picture, hearing only fragments of the sound. Without
intervention this stayes forever. A switch to another transponder cures this,
but usually the remote does not respond anymore. A restart of vdr brings back
good picture.

If I start vdr with D=0 disabling the nova card there are no problems!
(thats how I currently run vdr).
As said before, the patch did not help unfortunatly.
Any advice, how I can track this down?
