Hmmm - my SUSE 9.0 VDR has only the FF card while the 9.2 system has 2
budget cards (FSC Activy and a Skystar2). On the 9.0 system I use the
linuxtv-1.1.1 DVB drivers. Since I could not get these to compile on the
9.2 system I'm using the DVB drivers that come with the SUSE 9.2 kernel
(latest YOU one).

I suppose the 1.1.1 drivers are at least as recent as the ones in the
2.6.11 kernel?

Which I did, and found very little except the "-5" trick in remux.c. BTW I
am _still_ getting VSDBs now. 

Shame. I wanted to record Episode II tonight, and I'm still getting the
VDSBs. :-( Good news is it is repeated tomorrow afternoon.
