I've tested the lost lock problem by cutting the signal by placing an
iron bar in front of the sattellite LNB (who could imagine that a 2
meter iron bar is handy to debug a kernel driver ;-) )

With Twinhan cards and tuning with 'szap -r -x' I did not see any
difference: once the lock is lost, it's lost for good.

But with a NOVA-CI and tuning with vdr, I can recover the image and
sound when I remove the iron bar with the commented out code.

I've verified that I cannot get the image back with the original code.
