I should let on that I'm the developer and I've been using it a lot. I
started writing it back before VDR had a media player, so some sort of
frontend was really needed; even now I think boxstar has a lot of
advantages over VDR's media player, but VDR, especially with the
xineliboutput plugin, did improve a lot so I wasn't motivated to develop
boxstar's own DVB support.
Now I've got a DVB-S card and a DVB-T card together, VDR's channels
management just isn't good enough, so because of all sorts of other
niggles and because I don't like C++ enough to make big changes to VDR I
want to press ahead again with boxstar's DVB support.
