Hm, as "c't vdr" is based on GPL software all required
files must be available, including "Makefiles".

It's true that you can't just say "make" and get running
binary for you box.
But most switches are documented and obvious.

>My debugging binary segfaults, as well. 

That's good!

>I have collected several coredumps and these are the backtraces from them. 
>If you need one particular coredump, let me know.

I assume that the DVB developers will be of more help.

>As far as I can tell, there must be faulty EPG data.

Why do you assume that?


>Where do I go from here? 
>How can I find out which channel is sending the broken data? 

Every(!) external MUST be considered beeing broken!
Else the software is broken.

>And is there a possibility that the EPG data is

Because most drivers needs "reverse enigneering" t's very likely, that
the driver is not perfect.

You have switched OFF NTPL etc.?
