Since VDR-1.7.x introduced the TS recording format, the VDR recordings
world was split into PES and TS recordings. While VDR-1.7 can play both,
all VDR-1.7 recordings cannot be played by 'stable' VDR-1.6 systems any
more. In order to re-unite VDR-1.6 and VDR-1.7, I've back-ported parts
of VDR-1.7 to 1.6 to allow playback of TS recordings even on VDR-1.6
Facts in short:
- Plays back TS recordings in SD resolution
- HD recordings may work depending on output plugin
- Can edit TS recordings
- Records to old PES format, fully compatible to VDR-1.6.0
- No recording to TS possible, sorry.
- Supports >4GB and >255 files for TS recordings
- No frame rate support, assumes 25fps
- Implements TS device interface for output plugins
- Working TS to PES repacker
- Hybrid index file support. No conversion to/from old format as VDR-1.7
- EXPERIMENTAL! BE WARNED!
For convenience, there's a compatible version of the hard link cutter
patch and the jumpplay patch available. Since the impact of the patch is
quite big, other patches might break too.
