I also noticed that the version of the firmware just before the version string
was changed to 261e (around 05/05/26), caused problems with VDR being able to
switch channels and start a recording while a mpeg was being played with the
mplayer plugin.  While I was playing back a mpeg with the mplayer plugin and a
timer would start at the same time, VDR would crash and I would get the
following error:

"ERROR: failed to set PIDs for channel XXX"
