Actually, this script isn't much use after all. When scan's run in vdr compatibility mode (which isn't fully compatible with vdr anyway) it misses out the part-time channels ie BBC3, CBeebies etc depending on the time of day. And the script fails to correct the resultant clashes eg BBCi being channel 2. What we really need is a patch for VDR to make it get the channel numbers and sort on them. Some sort of bootstrapping would be a good idea too. At the moment VDR exits without any error messages if it doesn't have a channels.conf. It should at least allow the use of the OSD and/or ask the user for whatever info it needs to start a scan. -- TH * http://www.realh.co.uk _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
