Thanks for that. I must have scrolled back up and saw the wrong class, I meant cChannel:Name(). > >> Which global pointer will I have to deleted and assign to the new object? > > I don't understand this question. > There is no "new object". > You will have to patch the VDR source to implement this. The idea is that the plug-in would delete the current instance of cChannel and instantiate a new cChannel instance in the place there of. This without having to patch vdr to implement this feature. There for the question about the (e.g. global) pointer that is pointing to the original instance of cChannel. Is there a member function in the plug-in class that can be called from VDR's main and hand over such a pointer? > > Klaus > > _______________________________________________ > vdr mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr > _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
