For about a month now. Tested with 3 different DVB-S/S2 tuners with
VDR 2.3.1 and VDR 2.2.0 (requires minor changes to the patch) - rock
I don't have VPS, so I can't test it. The same is about DVB-T/C
tuners. After all, if something doesn't work this feature can be
disabled (and it is disabled by default),
