Well, at least something. :)

Yes, SNR is zero all the time. I am revering to the first "bar" signal 
strength. Its between 41 and 44 on all my channels.

I rerouted my antenna cable (it was close to an ups and other devices), 
but the strength didnt change. The bar was close to red in femon.

I made some recordings and watched one of them. NO missed frames or 
distortions this time.

But I never had any in Windows and i got them often with v4l.

Iam usind vdr to record and vlc on windows to watch the 00x.vdr files 

Maschine is a 2GB RAM, CPU AMD 4850, setup which idles most the time.

Thanks for any further tips.
