Hi !

Thanks a lot !
I'm using 0.0.6b and the new udev rules.
My setup is :
- first vdr (the one in production that has to be working, especially
  when i'm not @home)
  genuine vdr 1.7.17, 2 dvb-s cards, diseqc

- 2nd vdr
  dynamite vdr 1.7.17, 1 dvb-s ff card which keeps crashing + 1 dvb-t
  usb stick

It is working perfectly, i haven't tried to remove/add adapter yet.
I will do later today.

Just another question:
When i decide to only use one vdr instance, i'll be needing the diseqc
trick in diseqc.conf (the one that replaces the sourcecaps patch), how
do you think it could work ?
I guess the quickest workaround would be to add a new udev param to
force the card index in vdr.

I've been having issues with udev rules to order dvb devices in the
past, instead i'm using a simple simple script that gives vdr the
correct card number.
ex:
vdr $(get-dvb-device.sh main)
"get-dvb-devices.sh main" returns "-D 1 -D 4" for example. that way
i'm sure my main vdr always uses my two stable dvb-s cards
