Hello everybody, 

I have sporadic stability problems on my frontend; this time I checked and 
found an error message in the backend log: 

2006-08-15 19:53:32.015 DVB#0 ERROR - Failed to set demux buffer size (pid 18)
          (12) Cannot allocate memory

This happened after booting the frontend and entering into live tv mode; the 
screen showed the channel info, signal strength as always, (LAM) and Locked; 
but no program; back did not work, the frontend was unresponsive. After three 
minutes or so, the frontend crashed and was closed; after restarting the 
frontend and retrying to enter live tv, it worked. 

The DVB card is a Technisat Skystar2 DVB-S card. 

Is there something I can do about this?

Thanks and best regards,
