Indeed, you are right. I have just tried the very latest driver for my 
two PCs (a PIII 500 Mhz and a Pentium D 2800 Ghz) and the "new" bug has 
disappeared. All multiplexes and channels work well. I suppose this 
modification will appear in 2.6.19-rc2 ?

Sorry for this unnessary message (i.e. for the part 4 and the other 
thread), I tried last week and I wanted to post the bug but I didn't 
find the time and the testing of the new version was a bit cumbersome 
because in 2.6.19-rc1 the "old" driver (from August) refused to unload 
three modules with rmmod, despite the fact that otherwise it works well. 
There I had to reboot the PC to test the latest version but now it's done.

I have also looked at the titles of the different threads in the 
archives to find a mentioning of this problem but I didn't find anything 
but I may very easily have overlooked a relevant post.

Thanks and sorry again, Klaus.
