Be not confused by the different Soerens on the list ;-)
My problem (as reported twice in the last 3 months) is incomplete tuning.
Sometimes my vdr hangs with black screen and partially invalid lock flags
after tuning. A few minutes of EPG scan always kill my nova-t stick.
There is no firmware crash or disconnect, tuning to some other frequency
solves the problem until the next freeze.
