If you want to use the patches sent on the VDR ml then you have to use
hg clone http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto

as described at :
http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/OpenSuSE_DVB-S2_-_Step_by_Step_Installationsanleitung_%28Achtung_Beta%29

Even with non DVB-S2 cards, the tuning is faster (at least for me).

If you have an Hauppauge HVR-4000 you will need one more patch, which
you can find at :

http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-January/022762.html
I needed to modify the one posted earlyer because I have multiple cards
and VDR has to know the HVR-4000 can do DVB-S2 tunings.

And the firmware for it :

I totally agree, for example the support for Hauppauge HVR-4000 is
almost finished, but will maybe never be included :-(

I really hope the situation could become better ;-)
