Which version of VDR are you using?

2005-08-21: Version 1.3.30

- Now waiting at startup until all DVB devices are ready. This includes having
   all CAMs initialized and ready to decrypt, so that no more "channel not
   available" happens if VDR is started with the current channel being an encrypted
   one, or a timer on such a channel hits right after starting VDR.
