Thank you Patrick for the detailed info, it does make perfect sense to me, I never expected that Digium cards have such an problem!

No but there is a bug report with a lot of information that seems
similar: https://issues.asterisk.org/jira/browse/14031

In Europe telco's drop the D-channel (cut off power) to save on the
electric bill. The libpri/dahdi/asterisk combo should detect a dropped
D-channel and signal the telco to fire up the D-channel. Judging from
that bugreport ("Unresolved") it seems Digium has still not succeeded in
properly handling this situation.

Should you not be able to resolve this issue and really require an ISDN
BRI connection then have a look at an Eicon Diva or Sangoma card. Both
cards+drivers properly handle a dropped D-channel. I have used Eicon
Diva and Sangoma BRI cards in the Netherlands and they work fine. Or you
could get a blackbox from Beronet, Patton, Audiocodes etc. If you feel
adventurous you can also get a BRI card with a HFC-S Cologne chipset and
get the latest and greatest isdn4k-utils, mISDN, mISDNuser and lcr from
http://misdn.eu, build, install and configure lcr to talk to asterisk. A
few weeks ago I set it up and did one test call and that call worked
fine. Use at own risk :)

Regards,
Patrick
