This is a little bit beside the original subject:

I had the same problem with MyhtTV 0.20 and the EIT. What I realised was
that the tuning in the mythtv-setup sets incorrect frequencies for
muxes. So the way to get the EIT to work, is to first scan all the
channels with the mythtv-setup, to get the mux info/pids to be correct,
and after that to go and manually change the frequencies in the mux
table to what you got from dvbscan.

After this I got the EIT to function just fine.

On the original subject: I also suffer from the disconnects/oops, so for
now I am only using another older Hauppauge card, and the Nova T-500 is
waiting on shelf for bug fixes.
