It seems like it isn't specific to SVDRP anyway. I've rewritten boxstar to use the remote plugin and it's still got the same problem: the progress bar freezes, and VDR stops acting on keystrokes, but the video carries on playing. I can "reset" it it by stopping and restarting xine, which makes VDR go back to playing live TV; if I try to play the recording again I find it has jumped forward by a large amount. This is with VDR 1.4.1, vdr-xine 0.7.9 and xine-lib 1.1.2. I tried upgrading to VDR 1.4.3 but that's a disaster, it crashes the DVB cards as soon as Xine connects. vdr-xine is relatively old; I guess it needs an overhaul, and it could even be the cause of the original problem. Is there a newer "developer" version hidden away on a different site? The problems might be peculiar to df_xine, otherwise surely someone else using xine would have noticed by now, but I don't see how it could affect VDR like that unless the problem is in xine-lib. -- TH * http://www.realh.co.uk _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
