Hi!

Well, I'm having 4 clients (1xVDR streamdev-client, 2xHauppauge MVP, 
1xWindows-client) connected to my VDR-box with the cards that 
I'm only using as streamdev-server. I have both -S and -T cards with 
different channels on them so I would really like to have all five (or 
actually six) cards available through VDR ...
