I have not used the -D option because I want to be able to switch primary DVB
devices on the fly. I just assumed that PrimaryDVB in setup.conf would determine
the default for both CardIndex and device index. I am using a Nexus card in
softmode with xine.  I can switch between hardware and software decoding from
VDR's DVB settings by selecting which primary device to use.  It it just during
startup that I get that error message when I have xine as the default DVB device
(PrimaryDVB = 2).
