Yes, I also think you have to use software-playback, but in first place you 
have to prevent the mpeg-decoder of the ff-card to get in touch with the hdtv 
content and crash. And cause this is not possible in the firmware and in vdr 
on the fly without slowing down channel switches it must be stored either in 
the channels.conf or additionally and connected to channel-ids or similar.
