Thanks for that !
I'll be trying your patch this week end !
This is probably one of my most wanted vdr feature and it sounds like
you've just implemented it :)

questions :
- have you considered changing the way vdr detects adapter on startup ?
  for instance vdr won't detect /dev/dvb/adapter1 if
  /dev/dvb/adapter0 does not exist. this might happen when using udev
  rules and restarting vdr while a module isn't loaded

- what about being able to use aliases like /dev/dvb/dvb_s2_card_one
  with the -D arg ? (tho it's not really important)

- what about a github tree of vdr with your patch already applied ?
