    Sorry, it never worked before: After accessing /dev/vbi the computer
    locked up after some time: no keyboard, only hard reset.
    Might be related to that it is a dual P3-600.
    I just tried it again yesterday to see if the situation with VBI
    improved with the updated which went into 2.6.13-rc6 compared to the
    situation half a year ago.

    alevtd is outputting some debug information, which I'll capture for you.

    alevtd is Debians 3.94-1

    Please feel free to contact my. Turn around might by long, since the PC
    with DVB is at home without internet access, which I only have at work.
