[vdr] Safer diseqc setup ?

I recently obtained a EMP-Centauri S170-CP-16 switch that does 16in by
16out. I attached the two LNC of each LNB to the switch. So the way it
should work according the docs is:

LNC 1-4 are Diseqc port 0
LNC 5-8 are Diseqc port 1
LNC 9-12 are Diseqc port 2
LNC 12-16 are Diseqc port 3

The switch automatically sends 13v and 18v alternating on the LNC to the
LNBs. Finally I need to use Tone to switch between the two LNBs on any
Diseqc port.

LNB 1 - Diseqc 0 and no tone
LNB 2 - Diseqc 0 and 22mhz tone
LNB 3 - Diseqc 1 and no tone
LNB 4 - Diseqc 1 and 22mhz tone
LNB 5 - Diseqc 2 and no tone
LNB 6 - Diseqc 2 and 22mhz tone
LNB 7 - Diseqc 3 and no tone
LNB 8 - Diseqc 3 and 22mhz tone

I use 5 legacy circular LNB and one Universal linear LNB. I tried many
variations of diseqc.conf without luck. Did anyone have any luck getting VDR
to control such a switch? Or can someone suggest a syntax for the Diseqc
commands

Thanks

which is pretty close to yours, it works well for ONE card, but for
example if I start to reccord 
SSR-Espace 2;Radio Suisse
Romande:12382:hC34:S19.2E:27500:0:218:0:0:928:318:8500:0

I then can only tune to Hotbird... if I stop the reccording, no change,
still only Hotbird.

Thank for your email, and happy VDR :-)
