Yeah, this is good choice, iam running CineS2 too in rev 6.5 As i know, you running Gentoo, if have added any weeks ago media-tv/media-build-experimental to the overlay vdr-devel Be warnend, this package will install around 470 unneeded modules ;) Anyway, this is not what you want, yust show of an alternative... Also "Technisat SkyStar USB HD" running here fine with drivers from vanilla-sources without problems. > > Alternatively you could go for revision v6.2, what does use kernel > module "ddbridge", kernel upstream since version 3.2 (iirc), no > firmware file needed.
