my primary dvb card works fine on both of my Twin-LNB connectors.
I can switch the second card via szap and get a video stream via
"cat /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0 > /tmp/bla" on H and V channels.
VDR doesn't get data any data from H channels, but gets data from V
I will try to strace vdr and szap to get any difference, maybe they do
it in a different way.



I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
From field.
