I was in search for a plug-in that could map alternative long names to the supposedly current long name of a channel. I guess I didn't search hard and long enough, but could not find one that would implement this behaviour. The idea is, that when ever a channel list is called, it will provide the alternative long name, but saves the original long name in channels.conf.
So I thought of implementing one my self. After reading the PLUGINS.html from VDR-1.7.10, I thought it would be possible. I didn't see any spoon feeding when it came to channels in the documentation, so I thought I will have a look at channels.h and there seems to be a member function called Name() in the tChannelID class. Would it be wise then to copy the tChannelID class and replace the member function Name()? Which global pointer will I have to deleted and assign to the new object?
