[vdr] what is cDevice::Receiving() supposed to return?

Hi,

I'm trying to track down a problem with lnbsharing and software 
decoding, and am stuck at understanding what cDevice::Receiving should 
actually return.

I have two budget dvb-s cards, and use softdevice for output.

The patch runs i through 0...numDevices and queries 
device[i]->Receiving(). But for all 3 devices the call to Receiving() 
returns 0? Shouldn't at least one of the devices receive the currently 
viewed channel?

vdr tuned to channel 1, channelswitch to channel 2:

Apr 24 21:18:02 (none) user.err vdr: [15119] GMBP channel 2 device 0 LNB 
1 LNBstate 1 can provide channel 1 prio -1 receiving 0
Apr 24 21:18:02 (none) user.err vdr: [15119] GMBP channel 2 device 1 LNB 
1 LNBstate 1 can provide channel 1 prio -1 receiving 0
Apr 24 21:18:02 (none) user.err vdr: [15119] GMBP channel 2 device 2 LNB 
1 LNBstate 1 can provide channel 0 prio -1 receiving 0

What is the call to Receiving supposed to return? If it's always 
returning 0 I have an idea why lnbsharing doesn't work for me :-)

Thanks,

Andreas
