what is the "primary device" good for?

Is it used as output device when using FF-Cards or is it used for channel scanning or what?

I don't have FF-Cards in my setup, and I am getting this error messages when starting VDR:

ERROR: invalid primary device number: 4
ERROR: no primary device found - using first device!

Everything is working in my setup, so I am just ignoring this error message.
I just would like to know what this primary device is good for.

Is it save to disable the primary device using the DVBSETUP patch?

Thanks, Artem
