excluding the heat factor, there is an issue at least with my card 
(Twinham dvb) where it will some times, stop tunning all together. Any 
attempt to use the card gives the waiting for data error. I am 100% 
sure its my card.

With the backend release the card, this means that I loose at most one 
recording when this error occurs. If it holds onto the card then any 
subsequent recording trying to use that card also fails.

Taylor, the DVB bits of myth are completely out of my depth, would it 
be possible to reset/reconnect to the dvb card when we get the failed 
to get data state? This would mean that none of my recordings would 
fail. Its number 2 on the list of things I dont have time to figure out 
how to do.
