Dear Josh,

The hardware is USRP2 at 10Msps with latest UHD version

As you pointed, it seems that does not restart the streamer. I made a
rough patch that works continously. I still get overflows but it does
not stop.

-            return WORK_DONE;

         case uhd::rx_metadata_t::ERROR_CODE_OVERFLOW:
             _tag_now = true;

+            start();
             //ignore overflows and try work again
             return work(noutput_items, input_items, output_items);

Mainly I made stop/start when timeout or overflow occurs.

Whats the hardware? Sample rate? And I suppose UHD version as well.

It looks to me like there is an overflow (code 8), and then a timeout
(code 1). I bet the scheduler then prints "block returned 0 marking it
done" something like that...

So it looks to me that the overflow condition is shutting off the
streaming, and UHD is not automatically tuning streaming back on.
Hmm.... thats not right.

So let me know the hardware and I will try to replicate the fix the issue.
