What does the "Setup/LNB" menu look like on your system?
Does it list only the two DVB-S devices, or all four of them?
Which device numbers does it display?

What does the "DeviceBondings = ..." line in setup.conf look like
in both cases (working/not working)?

You wrote that your DVB-S2 device is "adapter2". Does this mean it
is actually "adaper2/frontend0" and "adapter2/frontend1"?

Have you appliead any patches to VDR?
If so, what happens without them?
Same for plugins.
