That's all right.
$uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.8-2-k7 #1 Mon Jan 24 03:29:52 EST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
makedev 2.3.1-74 updating makedev 2.3.1-75

and I remove all devices an I make dvd devices again ...
/dev/dvb/adapter0:
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    4096 2005-02-14 00:24 ./
drwxr-xr-x  6 root root    4096 2005-02-13 19:13 ../
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 1 2005-02-14 00:24 audio0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 6 2005-02-14 00:24 ca0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 4 2005-02-14 00:24 demux0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 5 2005-02-14 00:24 dvr0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 3 2005-02-14 00:24 frontend0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 7 2005-02-14 00:24 net0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 8 2005-02-14 00:24 osd0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 0 2005-02-14 00:24 video0

here the char major is 212.

and it's repeat
Feb 14 00:30:06 localhost vdr[12994]: probing /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
Feb 14 00:30:06 localhost vdr[12994]: no DVB device found

using first device!
Feb 14 00:30:06 localhost vdr[12994]: ERROR: invalid primary device

Thanks a lot for you spend your time with me.
