Sure, it happens when X starts. But it could also be bad timing. The
MythTV backend, the app that really uses the DVB stuff, starts right
before X.

I have asked for debug info from the dib0700 module.

And then nothing with 1.20 fw.

What is interesting, is that at each self-reboot, that are warm reboots,
the card is in cold state and needs a firmware. So can I conclude that
it never got loaded? Or that the self reboot is a cold reboot?

I have tried to boot without a firmware file, and it goes all the way to
MythTV without reboot.
