Package: vdr
Version: 1.7.20-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Upgrade from 1.6.x to 1.7.x (=> update to wheezy)

I get the following in syslog:
Nov 15 19:20:10 storage kernel: [83768.408982] ioctl32(tuner on fronte:5820): Unknown cmd fd(4) cmd(40086f52){t:'o';sz:8} arg(f6acd2bc) on /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0

And nothing considering vdr works. It doesnt even get new egp data via the

I am guessing after some googleing that it is a problem with me running a
i386 arch system with a amd64 kernel and some mismatch in the kernel
structures for the ioctl.

Any help would help. :)
