I tried the multiproto version 855d0c878944, but it didn't work on
my system. My VDR doesn't recognize my DVB-T card and hangs upon startup.
When I try to unload the driver modules, the 'rmmod budget_core' appears
to hang. If I kill that, a subsequent 'lsmod' also hangs, so I need to do
a reboot - which also hangs, so a hard reset is the last resort.

Then I tried the latest multiproto_plus version adf34f76ab7c, with which
VDR's startup sequence results in

This is the DVBFE_GET_DELSYS call that apparently fails.

Using the multiproto_plus version 88821ce4ed8d (2008-04-13) works fine.
So I'm still using that one for now.

Have there been any API changes since multiproto_plus version 88821ce4ed8d
that I would need to take into account in VDR?
