[vdr] Grab image failed

I've done more tests and I'm completely lost... GRAB doesn't work
neither to file "GRAB file.jpg" (starting vdr -g ...) nor "GRAB -"
tested under this conditions (all latests versions):

- vdr without any plugin
- vdr + softdevice
- vdr + xine

- tested with telnet localhost 2001 (obviously neither JVdr nor
   vdradmin Grab work).

I've verified permissions too.  In the past, IIRC up until
vdr-1.3.38, I've been using vdradmin which uses also GRAB,
however in the latest versions either a change in vdr or in
the kernel (recently updated to 2.6.15) or something else
I don't realize has made it stop.

Any idea? Maybe /dev/video? or kernel option needed? or type
of card (I have skystar2, but I doubt thats the reason).

thanks a lot in advance,
