I have the same card. Occasional "Oops" occurencies do happen, although
not very often. I had one situation before X-mas, then one yesterday.
I've set by system to generate a panic on oops, and reboot on panic.
That fixes the problem when it happens, and doesn't disturb the system
when it doesn't.

Enabling EIT scanning on the Nova-T 500 is not recommended, however.
Since the disconnect/reconnect happens while retuning, EIT scanning
(with it's "constant" multiplex jumping) causes the problem to appear
