I doubt this is relevant, but just in case. The only time I've had any 
similar problem, it was because I had multiple dvb devices and I hadn't 
configured them to use specific adapters. Each time I'd boot the 
machine, the different devices would get a random allocation to dvb 
adaptor numbers.

Admittedly, what the OP describes doesn't match that very well, but - as 
I say - just in case.
