Very sorry, I thought there is someone who wants to keep anonymous on my 
costs. Almost the same name (Bengt Stark <-> Bernd Stark) at the same mailing 
list, the same time, same thread - that seemed very unlikely...

Ok, you think I could perhaps get a full TS leaving my soldering gun cold, 
without any hardware manipulation? I configured the budget-patch kernel 
module and loaded it. dmesg output:

saa7146: register extension 'budget_patch dvb'.

No new devices in /dev/dvb/adapter0/ ? 
What else should happen? What application can I use to test if I can get a TS? 
Is VDR capable of that? How (still VDR newbie, you know)?

Have a nice time!
