Hello G-F, all,

A data point which you may already have.  I am using:

- an HVR4000
- recent S2API v4l-dvb from HG
- vdr-1.7.0 with patches from this mailing list (h264, s2api)
- recent xineliboutput from CVS

and I am able to receive DVB-S and DVB-S2 channels

I also have not tried DVB-T (due to lack of signal).

I have not upgraded to vdr 1.7.2 as I understood changes involving the 
switch to TS had not been addressed by xineliboutput (not tested).
