something like vga2scart.eu.org sounds good. Though our project is not limited to vga2scart. In the meantime I successfully use a modified version of the vga-sync-fields patch on DVI/HDMI interface also. Providing me high quality 576i over DVI/HDMI on intel i9xx machines with SDVO ports. Originating from SDTV our project could be important for HDTV also. > > or even better > > > > http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/ > > > > for this. > > If you are fine with that, great. My reasoning choosing ikiwiki is, that > I would expect it to save you (and others) time. I wonder why nobody else joins our discussion. Just to clarify: My major goal was to prove that graphics cards can provide the same picture quality as FF-cards do. But with wider flexibility at fractional cost of a FF-card among many other advantages. And without the need of expensive and time consuming hardware mods like full-TS mod, AV-board, J2 mod etc. We now have a working sample installation for a budget system with FRC based on easy-vdr  which has been successfully setup by various people. Reaching this stage I consider my 'mission' completed. You can setup a repos with current source found in vga-sync-fields package at anytime. Everybody is invited to test and contribute. I don't consider it as 'my' project. I just will contribute the initial idea behind frame rate control and a sample implementation for it. And of course I will continue to develop as time permits. > 1. Everyone can use his favorite text editor and saves time not having > to open a browser and use web forms. > > 2.

At least they have a wiki. The German VDR wiki  refers to  when you select the english language button. > Do you mean by discussion mailing lists? right. > I never used sourceforge.net.

'gitorious.org' appears ok for me. As I worked alone yet on this project I did not use any source code control system until now. As said, I don't consider it as my project. Everybody is invited to improve the project status. There are left many ideas and features still not implemented. I already wrote a to-do list with issues of lesser priority. But features that would improve things a lot. - like writing a tool similar to powerstrip. Which lets you adjust overscan and other parameters in real time by pressing cursor keys. or - derive xine's masterclock from graphics card frame rate. This would provide almost instant sync after a channel switch. The idea for this was published by 'durchflieger'  There are still left many things to do. As often in life it's not a matter of ideas but a matter of time:) Cheers Thomas  http://vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Hauptseite  http://www.linuxtv.org/vdrwiki  http://www.vdr-portal.de/board/thread.php?postid=796538#post796538  http://www.easy-vdr.de/forum/index.php?topic=6072.msg51320#msg51320 _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
