No, my FF cards are unmodified. I mean that I'm not using the FF
aspect -- I don't use the onboard decoder or tv output. I switched to
VDPAU for decoding (back when VDPAU was developed against the
xine-lib-1.1 tree), and the video cards output obviously. This was
long before VDR-1.7.16 and FF support moved into a plugin
("dvbsddevice" in VDR-1.7.11).

I experienced arm crashes a very long time ago (years) and it was due
to firmware, but since it was fixed there hasn't been any. I've never
got an "unknown picture type" error.

Your card should work as is with no modifications necessary. My only
advice is that you use the current firmware and driver. Maybe there's
a bug in the dvbsddevice plugin? That's the only thing I can think of
since there's no doubt FF cards work fine with VDR-1.7.16 when used as
