Well, under kaffeine it's so, but with VDR not...

It's one of my try, but it don't work sowell here. So I guess it's not
totally what kaffeine does.

I don't understand the difference betweem a diseqc and a multiswitch.

I think I will go off VDR and look how to use mastetimer similar tool
under it, it's way too hard to setup diseqc under vdr.

Thank for all your help, unfortunately, I give up...
