Hi Nikko,

no, sadly it has not worked out better for me in the past. Things 
remained bad.
What I find strange is, that at the time of vdr-1.3.15 Manu Abraham from 
the dvb-mailinglist introduced some changes to the twinhan-dvb-code 
which improved the whole "interference"-thing. It worked well for me (no 
disturbance at all!).
I ran 1.3.15 at that time, before that, I had disturbed video+sound. 
Actually, the reason why Manu Abraham started to improve the 
twinhan-code were these interferences.
Suddenly, after switching to 1.3.16 (I clearly remember) things got 
worse again.

Nevertheless, you could be right. This could be worth posting on the 
dxr3plugin-mailing list to hear dxr3-user experiences.

Thanks for your valuable comment.
