Hi,

I use vdr with TechniSat SkyStar 2 DVB-S card revision 2.6D.
I run vdr 1.3.44 as recording server at background without output devices:
# vdr v /mnt/pub/video -c /etc/vdr -L /usr/lib/vdr/
In a minute vdr starts to switch channels randomly. If I run vdr with
actuator plugin:
# vdr v /mnt/pub/video -c /etc/vdr -L /usr/lib/vdr/ -Pactuator
my dish starts to "walk" with the satellite on the satellite.
Here a part of mine log:

VDR 1.3.40 and 1.3.42 work similarly.
VDR 1.3.34 works normally.
I did not try other versions.

Sorry for my bad english.

With the best regards.
Monchenko Vladimir.
