[linux-dvb] Problems using two devices (ff & budget)

I forgot to mention that the timer start - stop event occurs repeatingly.

There is no recording and in the recordings menu there is no entry but
the timer is active (well, not active but starting and stopping all the
time).

Good to know, that the card and maybe the config also is alright ;-)

I checked the signal and there's no problem, also.

Thanks for your fast answer.
