Hi!

After i changed my sat tuner to Linux4Media cineS2 DVB-S2 Twin Tuner 
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Linux4Media_cineS2_DVB-S2_Twin_Tuner

femon's frontend info doesn't work anymore on all frontends.
Exact cause for that seems to be the way ngene driver registers frontends at 
/dev/dvb

My current /dev/dvb looks like this:
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1
/dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0

Since femon assumes that vdr card index is same as adapter index, femon shows 
stats from wrong frontend and can't show stas from /dev/dvb/adapter2 at all.

A quick look at vdr's device.h didn't reveal an easy fix for this problem, since 
cDevice doesn't store device paths or adapter/frontend numbers.
