[linux-dvb] Re: dvbstream stopping

My problem is that dvbstream (0.5) reads zero bytes from the

Correction 3 not 2 seconds approx.
The problem is solved by adding the following line to /etc/modprobe.conf
options dvb_core dvb_shutdown_timeout=0
I can't find this documented in the /usr/src/linux/Documentation/dvb/*
though it is remotely mentioned in the README in the driver distro
from linuxtv, but not many sees this.
"Note 2: you must keep ?zap running, or the frontend will go to sleep (unless
you load dvb-core.o with dvb_shutdown_timeout=0)"
Are there any drawbacks to dvb_shutdown_timeout=0 ?
If one is required to keep zap running (keeping the frontend
opened I assume), then other programs can't access the frontend
I assume - like dvbtune -m ?? or am I mistaken ?
