I was.
Actually, I also created the 1.2.6 dbox2 patch based on an earlier
version by Alexander Olk (check the mailing list archives for details).

Replay worked here with the patch you have, but many other things
did not, due to features that vdr used, the linux dvb driver has
and the tuxbox dvb driver does not have.

I guess the reason why replay no longer works must also lie in the
newer tuxbox dvb driver you use.

The whole thing became too time-consuming for me, so I bought a
barebone and installed a "real" vdr on it.

I do not think that the problem is there. See above.
