What will happen it there was a third VPS recording already running
on a third transponder?

BTW:
Meanwhile i did not see that "switching away" again.

I have 3 FF-DVB-S on one LNB and one DVB-T

but i found that the 1350Ghz AMD Duron "K7S8XE+" is overlaoded 
with 3 simlutanions recordings.

Too i found that channel hopping on 1.4.7 so noticable slower than
1.4.3 but that may be a DVB-driver problem too as i run a 2.6
kernel now which has a known worser memory performance than 2.4.


Too i see a noticable delay/skew between cursor movement and 
selection. (i press "down", the cursor left moves 200ms later
to next line, the higlight right moves approc. 300ms delayed.)



>Can all your DVB-S cards be tuned independent of each other?
>IIRC you're using the "lnb sharing" patch, which might interfere here.

Ooops.. does VPS (now) cause channel switching as EGP scan?
That would not be good because i currently use the unpatched
orginal debian/elchi package because "baking" patches under debian 
is not very easy to automate.
(OK, on vertical are only the garbage programs like RTL+ which do not
support VPS and are not worth recording)
