I don't have a diseqc setup, I have a twin lnb and both dvb cards are
connected directly.

It worked in the past, ok many timeouts, but after reloading the driver
and restart of vdr it worked.

I was amazed that vdr can not tune to a channel and szap can do it
without reloading the driver !

Maybe they use differnt methods to switch the channels.
