AFAIK the DVB driver API hasn't changed, so actually I would expect the
current VDR developer version (and also the 1.2.6 stable version) to work
with _any_ DVB driver version. However, I also have a problem with the kernel
2.4 branch of the dvb-kernel driver, because the picture and sound drop out
every now and then. This is an old problem that I once have fixed in the old
DVB driver, but maybe somebody dropped that fix when going to dvb-kernel... :-(
It may only happen with the rev 1.3 Siemens DVB cards.
