Just search for the Message, change the output and make a diff.
But as I know the remux don't know for which device it will do the work.
But you are right, sometimes it would be very nice to know which device 
makes Problems.
Btw it would be nice to know whats behind the devicenumber. Is it 
possible to detect that the first device is my DVB-S FF TT 1.5 ?? Maybe 
the Name of the device would be nice.
