Hi,

I was trying to get my MSI Digivox Mini SL to run with m920x-2bfda2098748.
Basically, the USB stick works fine but my TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-CI PCI
seems to refuse work with the budget_ci driver contained therein. The
setup is: 

frontend 1   Fujitsu Siemens Activy Budget-S PCI  (Astra)
frontend 2   TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-CI PCI   (Astra; no CI attached)
frontend 3   Sky2PC/SkyStar 2 DVB-S   (Hotbird)
frontend 4   MSI Digivox Mini SL DVB-T    (DE-Munich, just to play with)

Sourcecaps patch etc. work fine. Softdevice-0.4.0 used as the MPEG decoder. 

Whenever a recording starts, VDR crashes after some seconds:

Apr 23 00:36:39 linvdr vdr: [7983] record /video/Die_Killerhand/2007-04-23.00.35.50.99.rec

Apr 23 00:37:16 linvdr vdr: [16815] initiating emergency exit
Apr 23 00:37:16 linvdr vdr: [7983] emergency exit requested - shutting down

And then VDR restarts, the recording restarts, VDR crashes, restarts, etc. 

This does not happen with the DVB drivers supplied with OpenSUSE 10.1
(which doesn't support the DVB-T stick ...)

Any help is welcome. 

It would also be nice if "make insmod" did not load *all* of the DVB
drivers, just the ones that are actually needed. 

It's also interesting to see that even if a recording starts for a channel
that is on the same bouquet as the one tuned in on receiver 1, the second
receiver is used for the recording. Is that by chance or on purpose?
