I maintain an app which is a EPG/digital recorder and am looking at
using gstreamer

However when I try using gst-launch it seems to automatically lock the
dvb device

I sthere any way to prevent this so I can add further pids to the

sample command line is
 gst-launch dvbsrc frequency=489833000 pids=6785:6786 ! filesink

I would like to be able to use the device to do a second recording on
the same frequency but using different pids/location as dvbstreamer does

ie:  gst-launch dvbsrc  pids=6881:6882 ! filesink location=ds9a.ts

however I get problems with accessing the dvb device
