Congratulations VDR, Klaus and every person who contributed to VDR in any way possible!
I can honestly say that about 2 years ago I didn't use VDR, because I thought it required a Full DVB card. But since I wanted to watch HDTV, I decided to gamble and buy a HTPC instead. So that I could be more flexible, it was cheaper then a dedicated HDTV receiver (which in total costed me more then I anticipated, but hobby costs money anyway) and it was more future proof. In the beginning I started using some awkward Windows applications (MCE, Media portal, DVB Viewer Pro) and Myth TV, but it wasn't quite what I wanted and I was planning to sell my HTPC. Then I discovered that I could use VDR in combination with a softdevice-plugin, I've never gone back to other options. Ok, I still test some new hard- and software but still I keep coming back to VDR. And yes, that's a major compliment :).
