Er, no. There hasn't been a Debian distribution with a number like that ;-)

When reporting to an English-language list, it's a good idea to make sure
that the error messages are in English ;-)
Anyway, babelfish says "such device or direction does not exist" - that's
close enough to "no such device". This looks like a problem caused by the
device numbering change which happened a while ago now: /proc/devices should
contain the line "212 DVB". If it does, then this will fix your problem:
# rm /dev/dvb/adapter? -rf
# cd /dev && MAKEDEV dvb
Restarting vdr should now work.
