A small correction. I have two vdr boxes and I reported the wrong one 
for the hw :)
The correct hw is:
DVB: registering new adapter (Technotrend/Hauppauge WinTV DVB-C rev2.X)
So it is not a Nexus-CA. But it is a ff card and I do not have another 
card on my second system. And the firmware is the same.

Also correct values for these are
$grep . /proc/sys/fs/file-*
/proc/sys/fs/file-nr:704        0       50569
