Hi,
so I tried to look for some kind of info to help me identify the tuners, 
this is the most interesting bit I guess:

VDR-test-cellar (SDB1): udevadm info --query=all 
--name=/dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 --attribute-walk
   looking at device 
'/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.0/0000:02:00.0/dvb/dvb1.frontend0':
     KERNEL=="dvb1.frontend0"
     SUBSYSTEM=="dvb"
     DRIVER==""

VDR-test-cellar (SDB1): udevadm info --query=all 
--name=/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 --attribute-walk
   looking at device 
'/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.0/0000:02:00.0/dvb/dvb0.frontend0':
     KERNEL=="dvb0.frontend0"
     SUBSYSTEM=="dvb"
     DRIVER==""

VDR-test-cellar (SDB1): udevadm info --query=all 
--name=/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0 --attribute-walk
   looking at device 
'/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.0/0000:02:00.0/dvb/dvb2.frontend0':
     KERNEL=="dvb2.frontend0"
     SUBSYSTEM=="dvb"
     DRIVER==""

VDR-test-cellar (SDB1): udevadm info --query=all 
--name=/dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0 --attribute-walk
   looking at device 
'/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:06.0/0000:01:06.0/dvb/dvb3.frontend0':
     KERNEL=="dvb3.frontend0"
     SUBSYSTEM=="dvb"
     DRIVER==""

VDR-test-cellar (SDB1): udevadm info --query=all 
--name=/dev/dvb/adapter4/frontend0 --attribute-walk
   looking at device 
'/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.0/0000:02:00.0/dvb/dvb4.frontend0':
     KERNEL=="dvb4.frontend0"
     SUBSYSTEM=="dvb"
     DRIVER==""

At the moment I cannot find anything to identify the 4 Tuners on the 
Cine S2, the FF on 01:06 is easy.
I got hit by tuning problems a few days ago as the tuner without a cable 
was given FE3/0. The FF got FE4/0
at that time.  I'm wondering if the DDBridge driver will always number 
in the correct order.

So I guess I'll try to make the FF FE0/0, and hope that the DDBRidge 
driver will do the rest.

Cheers Brian
