i want to use astra and hotbird, but i don't know how. what is the easiest
way? at the moment i have a quad-lnb for astra and two dvb-s cards. i
wanted to by a additional lnb for hotbird and put it together on the
satellite dish. but how do i have to connect it to the computer? normally
i want to see astra, only sometimes hotbird, so i don't want to use one
dvb-s card only for hotbird. i found a diseq-switch, wich has two in and
one out connectors. is it possible to connect one line from astra an one
from hotbird to that switch and from the switch to one of the dvb-cards.
the other card stays at the second line from astra. is it possible for vdr
to handle this?
and what if for example i watch with the dvb-card (1) which is connected
directly to astra and at the same time i want to record at astra with the
other dvb-card (2). should work. now i stop watching on 1 and want to see
hotbird. what does vdr do? switch recording to 1 and watch hotbird via 2?
any other possibility to include hotbird? better solution?
