I had discussed this with the author of the driver some time ago, and
came to the conclusion that my CPU is too slow or interupt wiring is
too suboptimal.
In the meantime I connected the device to several other machines, and
the problem still exists.

I don't know if this is a driver oder vdr issue.
vdr author Klaus Schmiedinger told me that vdr only request the
current channel data (i.e. not the complete transponder) from the DVB
device, so no USB bandwidth problem shall occur. If this is true,
there must be some driver problem, which I cannot debug myself due to
limited programming knowledge.

If anyone has more ideas, please let me know.

Thank you.
