Hi,
well the DVB device numbering is not consistent:

"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  15:25   [995] frontend 3/0 provides 
DVB-S,DVB-S2,DSS with QPSK (""STV090x Multistandard"")"

DVB-S,DVB-S2,DSS with QPSK (""STV090x Multistandard"")"
"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  15:25   [995] frontend 1/0 provides DVB-C with 
QAM16,QAM32,QAM64,QAM128,QAM256 (""ST STV0297 DVB"
"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  15:25   [995] frontend 0/0 provides 
DVB-S,DVB-S2,DSS with QPSK (""STV090x Multistandard"")"

"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  05:10   [1018] frontend 0/0 provides

"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  06:52   [1080] frontend 3/0 provides DVB-C with 
QAM16,QAM32,QAM64,QAM128,QAM256 (""ST STV0297 DV"
"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  06:52   [1080] frontend 2/0 provides

"VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  19:16   [1015] frontend 2/0 provides

Up till now it has not been a problem, the one without a cable must be 
4/0. Still I am wondering if this can be controlled?
Before VDR start unload the DVB drivers, then load DVBTTPCI first and 
give it a short delay and then load DDBridge maybe?
Still, then is it then guaranteed that DDBridge will number its 4 tuners 
correctly?

Cheers Brian
