Hi Eddi,

since you don't mention it,

it is very important to use packed formats and not the default planar
format when doing analog at once with DVB-T!

Otherwise you get memory or even file corruption.
According to Hartmut it is due to a limitation of the dma engines.

Other testers please take care.
