[vdr] vdr-1.6.0 channel not available

Hello

I have 2x DVB-C cards with Alphacrypt multi-cams.  A TT-1500-C budget card and a TT-2300-C FF card and run vdr-xine.

When recording one channel and attempting to watch another in the same transport stream, or trying to switch to another transport stream (and hence card) I get "channel not available" messages.  After switching back and forth to other transport streams, usually I can overcome this problem.  But occasionally I it won't play any channels in one specific transport stream or another.

What's the best way to diagnose this?  How do I enable debugging to see more info than is displayed in messages:
