This is something I would like to change.
Just let vdr iterate over (number only an example) the first 8 dvb-adapters 
and try them.

For now you can also have your runvdr give vdr the parameters -D 0 -D 2 -D 3 
(script loop) to use all adapters.

Or better: Ask hal (if available) to enumerate them. That could even enable us 
to get vdr hotplug-able.
My long term goal is to get the dvb-driver no longer crash on disconnect, but 
just signalize The error ENODEV. And that vdr cope with device plug/unplug.
