[linux-dvb] 2 identical cards, devicesnums sometimes exchanged OT?

Hello List,

i encountered a silly problem with lirc (or linux-dvb). Im using 2 aver
dvb-t 771 cards inside
my pc. Sometimes (after restart), the device-number is exchanged with the
number from
other card - this put me into a small problem, cause im using just one
remote receiver of
just one card. Is there any way to prevent that? Ive not any clue, why
sometimes my
receiver is on /dev/event2 and sometimes on /dev/event3.

Sorry for crossposting, i am not sure, where to place it correctly.

Maybe its not lirc-related cause the event-device it swapped and this is job
of the
dvb-modules, or...?

This all is more interesting than annoying.

Thanks in advance for any help.
