That's definitely is a part of it. I know former VDR users who switched to myth for that very reason. Now that VDR has support for hdtv, it's finally getting an osd overhaul as well (maybe coming in 1.7.9?), which will be 24bit iirc. We'll finally be able to have a high color/high resolution osd as well, which I'm hoping will spawn peoples interest in making some really great skins and so on. Most tv stations it seems offer their logos in high color/high res as well. I know Klaus prefers to focus more on stability then things like candy enhancements but I think he realized this is something users really wanted to see implemented now that hdtv support is present. And with so many users investing in things like inexpensive vdpau-supported video cards over overly expensive 'full featured' dedicated cards, it's a logical enhancement to make to bring VDR up-to-speed visually. One thing I would like to see in the future is a solid server/client solution for VDR. That is the other and probably biggest reason users have abandoned VDR in favor of myth. Yes there are things like streamdev or xbmc+vdr, etc.. But those options are either too limited or too much hassle. It would be great if we could just set one software (VDR) up and keep things lean. I don't think this is something we'll see any time soon, if at all. But then a lot of people said the same thing about support for hdtv and an awesome osd. :) Cheers, Derek _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
