I just got an updated v4l today because it has fixes for xc5000 based cards as of monday along with new firmware for that card. I
also use nexus and the first patch below seems to now be included, but the second patch uas a lot of both succeeded and failed:

Is it still needed or has it been replaced with another patch?

You need the DVB driver version from


or, alternatively, apply the two patches


(in *this* sequence) in order to replay TS recordings with full featured
DVB cards! The second patch is only required for replaying pure audio
Users of full featured DVB cards also need to use a new firmware,
available at


Note that the header files in the latest driver versions may be broken.
If you get compiler error messages like

  /usr/include/sys/types.h:52: error: conflicting declaration 'typedef __ino64_t ino_t'
  /usr/include/linux/types.h:14: error: 'ino_t' has a previous declaration as 'typedef __kernel_ino_t ino_t'

when compiling VDR, you need to put the driver header files back to
how they were before they got broken. One way of doing this is to
apply the patch from


(I'm not claiming that this is the right way to fix this, since the driver
developers may have had good reasons for making that change. However, both
the driver and VDR compile and work fine with this).
