[linux-dvb] Application or Kernel problem?

When executing a list scan (i. e. no channel scan with a starting transponder, but a scan using a complete list of single transponders) using “szap” and “scan” the Pinnacle PCTV Sat card suffers timeouts. That is normal. But if those timeouts emerge again and again the card reaches a state in which it hangs. In this state you cannot reinitialize it by entering “modprobe -r dvb-bt8xx” and “modprobe dvb-bt8xx.” The only chance is to shut down the system and restart it. Even a reboot does not help!

My questions:
1.	Is that a kernel or an application issue?
2.	How can this be resolved?
