since the upgrade to VDR version 1.6.0 the entire system will randomly
freeze when using multiple instances of VDR. This issue could be
reproduced by using the commandline switch -D to specify the DVB devices.
Unfortunately there are no logs which could identify the problem .. it
* vdr = "-D 0 -D 1"
* vdrdevel = "-D 2 -D 3"
I am running the very latest version from e-tobi (multipatch). vdrdevel
is the same version as vdr, but repacked by using the buildpackage
option SPECIAL_VDR_SUFFIX=devel. Using the older 1.5.13 setup with the
same hardware (4x cinergy c ~ mantis) is working like charm.
I don't think it is a driver / module problem, because running a single
VDR instance with all devices attached to it won't crash. But when
starting one instance which is only using two devices, the system will
freeze .. even if there's no other vdr process running.
