Same config, but debian and LNB sharing patch.
main invoke lines:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
VDRPRG="./vdr -v /video0"
#VDRCMD="$VDRPRG  -D0              -l 3 -w 60 -s /video0/pwroff $*"

EPG scan time=1 (with time=0 the red key only closes the menu..not really ergonomical.)
"red key"
Screen becomes black
any key the screen turns on again

syslog shows
1:44 [8478]: max. latency time 1 seconds
1:54 [8478]: saved setup to /video0/setup.conf
2:03 [8478]: info: Starting EPG scan
2:05 [8478]: max. latency time 2 seconds
2:50 [8478]: switching to channel 14
2:57 [8482]: changing pids of channel 162 from 901+901:902:204 to 701+701:702:204

But: i miss the "switching to 0" ("switch to 14" 
occured when i pressed any key)

Too that does not really help to determine the looping
in a multicard system and why EPG is trying to switch to an entriely 
senseless random channel
(3 FF-DVB-S 1 DVB-T)
