[vdr] USB IR Receiver not loaded when vdr starts on boot

The script 'runvdr' sets the following access permissions: chmod o+r

But since the IR receiver on my USB NOVA-T Stick has not loaded to
/dev/input/event5 when runvdr sets the permissions, vdr refuses to
start properly when booting the machine.

The error is stated as a "Permission denied" on the remote device

By doing mv /etc/rc2.d/S20vdr /etc/rc2.d/S30vdr the problem goes away.

I'm on Ubuntu Lucid btw.
