[vdr] [ANNOUNCE] VDR developer version 1.7.23

The drivers I am using I downloaded from the media build tree using "git clone git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git" as suggested on the Linuxtv.org site. However, these appear to be 'old' drivers as I am still getting 2 frontend devices created for my card when I load them.
Can anyone suggest how I can get the latest set of Manu Abraham's drivers which I believe may contain some later patches.

If you are using new dvb driver you should only have 1 frontend which has all of the delivery systems. The DVBv3 message also looks suspicious.
Can you double check that new drivers are loaded and you have indeed only 1 frontend for that card ? (Not saying that there is not a bug)
