I never had to patch my VDR to make it play NTSC properly. Have you ever
tried the videosystem plugin? I have been using it for quite some time
and it always worked flawlessly. It can be found here:
VDR will play video fine w/o patching the code. But, the improper
framerate will calculate incorrect times on the video. Also, the OSD
will be sized differently when 720x480 is used instead of the hardcoded
value of 720x576.
The plugin will take care of the OSD resizing for sure. That was the
main reason I installed it.
Regarding the time display... I'm not quite sure if the plugin also
takes care of the correct calculation of time for the progress bar and
such things, but you can give a try and see how it turns out.
