When upgrading from vdr-1.3.24 to vdr-1.3.32 last week I also found some 
messages in the syslog like "/video/xyz not found" although I use 
/video0. Still had not the time to take a further look, that´s why I did 
not report immediately, but I think this is related to your report.

With kind regards
