|  When reporting to an English-language list, it's a good idea to
|  make sure that the error messages are in English ;-)
|
that's right, I'll try translate it all.

|  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:
|
the device exist
#grep DVB /proc/devices
212 DVB

|  # rm /dev/dvb/adapter? -rf

and I remove all devices

|  # cd /dev && MAKEDEV dvb

and I make dvb devices again ...
ls -laF /dev/dvb/adapter0
total 8

|  Restarting vdr should now work.

and restarting ...

and It's the same
