Question is, how recent. I'm just running a recording on ARD. 
vdr-1.4.1-5, DVB driver of kernel 2.6.16.19, latest beta firmware 
f22623. Lots of transfer buffer overflows and sluggish OSD, because VDR 
used the primary FF card for recording, while the secondary budget card 
is idle. System is back to normal if I switch to another channel.

Cheers,

Udo
