i have 68% and 75% on ARD. 70/70 on ZDF 67/82 on 1+
66/83 on Kabel1
BER= 0 means that the signal is sufficient.
I do not realise UPT errors...

The levels are not realy good (i'm sitting at teh end of a much
too long wire and need an inline amplfier.)

>What is the reason for the "unknown picture type"?

VDR is "out of sync" when trying to interpret the data AFAIK.

>I use Kernel 2.6.10, the DVB-drivers which come with 2.6.10 and VDR
