There have been a lot of fixes recently e.g. for FF cards. So if I use
such one, I am forced to upgrade because there were a lot of unsolved
problems for years like 'unknown picture type' and 'video data stream
broken' messages that seem to be cured.
Futhermore, e.g. at VDRPortal, peter_weber69 is working on a kanotix
live cd with VDR. This is based on kernel 2.6.11, but if you want to
support latest cards (especially DVB-t) you would be forced to upgrade
the kernel as long as there were no patches for older kernels.
