Ok, so one would need to find out what are the real S2API tuning specific 
code in vdr h264 extension patches so that I could find out why vdr fails 
to tune with hvr-4000. Or actually maybe the correct answer is to 
understand what is the difference between those two S2-API drivers.

szap-s2 seems to work with my card fastly when the tuning data is 
available. With scan-s2 I remember having some problems for finding HD 
channels if I had not szapped first.

I will try the s2-liplian tree also omorrow for 
verifying whether that tree works identically with my card.

Could you send for verification how you have defined arteHD data in vdr 
channels.conf? (Just to verify that I do not have there any mistakes)
I have it in following way:
arte 
HD;ZDFvision:11361:hC23M16O35S1:S19.2E:22000:6210=27:6221=deu,6222=fra:6230:0:11120:1:1011:0
