Of course i have given myself the answer:
Reason was not opening the fd_frontend at all, which was required for safe
signalless operation (opening and instantly calling FE_SLEEP turned out to be
instable as even with analogtv-only setup vdr somehome emits ioctls which
open the frontend again which does lead to the unfamous ARM-crash due to
So i changed dvbdevice.c so, that "scanner" and "siProcessor" are created
anyway, even if fd_frontend is patched to stay closed.
Did i miss anything with this? At least it seems to work again now.
BTW - is there an option for similar behaviour in vdr 1.3.x ?
(i still can't use it, it is so unstable in my setup, it seems it stress the
card to much, maybe because of the higher OSD-load? i tried it with my
current firmware and with the recommended new firmware)
