ok, I will check with another fec

I can see without any problem video/audio bitrate on the top right of OSD (that's why the bitrate is parsed at the
moment correctly) , but I don't see video/audio bitrate below in OSD

again -  I can see without any problem video/audio bitrate on the top right of OSD (that's why the bitrate is parsed at the
moment correctly) , but I don't see video/audio bitrate below in OSD of femon

the same problem was described on our Russian-vdr forum from other vdr user. It wasn't happened on previous femon versions.
I will not be able to run vanilla vdr 170 because I have s2api drivers
