So what's to learn of this for an end user? Is the nova-t 500 just  
dud hardware which would benefit being replaced with something from a  
different vendor?

How do these problems now manifest themselves for the end user when  
using the hardware with an end user program like VDR? Does one have  
to restart the application?
