OK, for my case that still is enough, (I've put a 2 in that field to
only allow ZDF on dvb1 (though there are dvb0/dvb1/dvb2), it may even
work with more adapters if I understand the vdr manpage correctly if I
put X,Y,Z in that field (X,Y,Z being the device nr). However as dvb0 is
a dvb-c card not connected to the cable network I cannot test this...

Thanks,
