Gavin (or others),

  If you have any tips on things to check for I would love to hear
them. I have had a HVR-2250 for some time and ever since I changed to
the driver with analog support DVB support has been problematic. Just
a few minutes ago I tried to start a DVB recording on the card's input
1 and then a second recording on DVB input 2. No other recordings were
taking place at the time. The second recording failed. I have the
debug log of the time, but there is so much data I don't know what to
look for.
