Hello

for years i was running VDR 1.4.3.
 
Now i felt forced to use ctvdr and 1.4.7 with a
Linux 2.6.23x2 #2 SMP PREEMPT on a 
Main Board: K7S8XE+ AMI BIOS  P1.70 (04/27/2004)
and an AMD Duron(tm) 1350MHz (under clocked from 1500)
with 512MB RAM 


i found this miracle(?):

The systen has 4 cards:

vdr:~# dmesg | grep -i frontend
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Zarlink MT352 DVB-T)...
DVB: registering frontend 1 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 2 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 3 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...

with setup.conf

PrimaryDVB = 2 

i got sound and live screen

After a slight (benign) change reboot i have 
no live image and no sound anymore.
Panic!
What happend?






vdr:~# dmesg | grep front
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 1 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 2 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 3 (Zarlink MT352 DVB-T)...

Mystery...
another warm reboot without any change:

vdr:~# dmesg | grep front
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 1 (Zarlink MT352 DVB-T)...
DVB: registering frontend 2 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 3 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...


And again:

vdr:~# dmesg | grep front
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 1 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 2 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering frontend 3 (Zarlink MT352 DVB-T)...
