I do.

Yes, happens to me, too. That's usually because the backend died but I
also experienced situation where the FE managed to connect to BE second
time (while reporting that no BE is running at first, etc).

This happens to me sometimes, too.

Me too. I just found this one in the logs:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  St9bad_alloc


P.S. I wonder what does the following warning mean: "DVBChan(3:1)
Warning: Your frequency setting (11992500)
is out of range. (min/max:950000/2150000)"

I understand that 9,500,000/2,150,000 are the limits for frequencies
after conversion while the 11,992,500 is the original satellite
frequency before the conversion but why thy are compared together?
Perhaps wrong configuration somewhere??
