Did you try:

hg pull http://arvdr-dev.free-x.de:8080/testdvb/
hg pull http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto/
hg pull http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto_plus/

It seems that liplianindvb is down at the moment, but according to some others the 1st link is a copy of the liplianindvb repository. The 2nd and 3rd are the 'official' multiproto repo's

Might not or might be. Since there's no S2API patch for VDR 1.7.x, you can still use multiproto with these versions. It works (I use a Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-HD-S2 myself using the liplianindvb repo) beautifully on my configuration. And I watch HDTV/DVB-S2 channels using the eHD without any problems. My current VDR uptime is now 13 days with this configuration. Before that it was 35 days, but I had to shutdown my HTPC so that I could move my audio/video furniture to a different location :/
