Yes I know that, but still some people had reported similar problems,
allegedly due to different driver/firmware combinations...

There is no change in the driver whatsoever, unfortunately ;-)
The interesting thing is that the driver version does not seem to matter at
all...
It simply works with Kernel 2.6.12, but doesn't with 2.6.13.
I tried the built-in drivers as well as CVS from 28.08.05 and 19.09.05
respectively.
Always same result. 2.6.12 -> no problem, 2.6.13 -> VDSB :-/

Yes, sorry, it's been quite a while since I've been subscribed to either
list....
So far, VDR Portal had all the answers I needed...
Next time I'll try to address the correct list ;-)
