Hello,

I am having problems with my DIGITTRADE DVB-T USB Stick with af9015 chipset
since a few weeks. It works for a while (sometimes about 3 minutes, sometimes
half an hour) but suddenly the video stream freezes and dmesg says:

I am not even able to rmmod the dvb_usb_af9015 driver, the process hangs.

I already tried a more recent firmware and driver, so I am now working with
firmware v4.95.0 and changeset 71dec186cdae of the v4l-dvb repository. My
system is running on a 2.6.28-15-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP kernel.

What do these error messages mean? What meaning do the numbers have? Could it
be that my hardware is broken? It has now been working for over a year now
without major problems (and even better than on Windows, thanks to v4l-dvb ;-))

Thanks in advantage,
Roland Hieber
