I don't know. I just grab the latest driver from http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto
and compile it on my SUSE 10.3 system, running the stock SUSE kernel.
So just unload all DVB modules that come with the stock kernel and load
the ones from the multiproto driver. Works fine for me.

Maybe the fact that VDR now requires the multiproto driver will
finally make the various driver branches come together to *one*
DVB driver again.

Well, one can at least dream...
