Well, I like the idea of taking the plain VDR and a FF DVB card
and have it run "out of the box", without having to fiddle around
with any plugins ;-)
And even if FF cards are no longer "modern", wouldn't there always
be a at least some DVB device that delivers the broadcasts?

It's not like I'm generally against making dvbdevice.c a plugin, but
if it's needed in most cases, anyway, where's the point?

Or do most implementations *not* use DVB devices?
