Comment (by linux at bohmer.net):

 I also have similar problems. I do not know if it is the exact same
 problem as mentioned here:
 The problem I see is that liveTV freezes. Mostly after 10-30 minutes
 viewing time. It only happens on encrypted channels for which I have a
 LEGAL CAM and Smartcard.
 Further investigating this, learned me that after a certain amount of time
 between 10 and 30 minutes e.g., the MPEG stream falls back from decrypted
 to encrypted, disabling the frontend from viewing the videostream. This
 results in forcing me to press ESC to go back to the main-screen, and
 reopening the same channel. Similar things happen during recording.

 In my case it seems that the CAM needs to be programmed periodically to
 unlock the channel being viewed. This currently only seem to happen once
 during starting a new session.
 Does this need to be done by the driver, or by MythTV?

 I use a Skystar 1-CI (alias Twinhan VP1030) adapter on a Core-2-Duo
 (E6600, 2.4GHz) system, Asus P5B motherboard with FC6.
