Hi. Big thanks to Reinhard, Manu, Claus and others who has made this
possible. Using the old multiproto tree from 2007-10-25 I have SVT HD
(swedish) working quite well with an S2-3200 on a 2.3GHz AMD BE-2400. My
problem is that with that multiproto tree, VDR won't tune to any dvb-t
channels on my nova-t 500. And with the latest multiproto tree dvb-t
works but only unless I load the S2-3200 modules. If I do that VDR just
hangs at startup saying nothing and doesn't answer on svdrp. Is there a
way to debug this and see what's happening? Does anybody have any ideas
about what's going on? If I remove the channels.conf vdr complains about
that, so I know it's coming that far at least. There's no difference if
I load any plugins or not.
Again, I have followed all steps on the wiki and h.264+dvb-s2 works with
the old multiproto, both using vdr-1.5.10 with your "old" patch and on
vdr-1.5.12 with the new one. I'm running this on the 2.6.22-14-generic
kernel that ships with Ubuntu 7.10.
Keep up the good work,
