 No the other DVB-S2 tuner is adapter3 (TechnoTrend S2-3600), all four
only have frontend0 no frontend1.

 Currently the two patches belonging to the iptv and ttxtsubs plugins
and my stb0899 signal strength patch, and of course the FreeBSD
portability patches.

 I will have to check that later tho I guess they are unrelated...

 I just started vdr with just the xineliboutput plugin (I don't have
an ff card) and got the same

DeviceBondings = 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

when setting both DVB-S2 tuners as ".. connected to sat cable 1".

 I wonder, could this be a result of me running vdr with only the DVB-S2
tuners once and the first 1 in DeviceBondings that I may have set then
simply doesn't get reset when the first two tuners became DVB-T?
