Another question: Wouldn't it be possible to make the current VDR work with "old" firmwares? Maybe with a switch to the kernel driver, which toggles between "real" TS mode and PES/TS transcoding on the CPU?

The FF card works well, if PES is used. It seems to be the switch to TS which makes FF cards fail. So if the card only works well with PES in unmodded form, then the users should have a chance to keep with PES on this card. Maybe it would even be better to use some kind of transcoding by default and only switch to "real" TS if the full-TS mod is detected.

IMHO it is not good to force users to mod their cards, if they want to switch to the future VDR 1.8 (or 2.0 or whatever version number Klaus plans for the future release). Most users will fail to mod the card, as the Full TS mod is by far the most complicated mod for the FF card. I'm pretty good at soldering, but I don't think I would manage to successfully do a full-TS mod.
