- Plugins can now define new sources. In order to implement this, the following
   changes were made:
   + The transponder parameter string is no longer interpreted by cChannel, but 
     stored as is and used only by the respective device. That way plugins can 
use a
     channel's parameter string to store arbitrary data (see vdr.5).
   + The new class cSourceParam can be used by plugins to define new sources, 
and to
     implement OSD items that will be used in the channel editor for editing 
the source
     specific parameters of a channel (see dvbdevice.c for an example of how 
this is
     done for the default DVB devices).
   + Purely numerical values are no longer accepted in the 'source' parameter 
of a
   This obsoletes the PLUGINPARAM patch.

Is it right, that the sources have to be unique across the different plugins, at least at one installation? Where can I "register" for an "official" source-character? Who would document the assigned sources and where? 'C', 'S' and 'T' are used by dvbdevice, 'P' was used by the plugin-param-patch. Since it was used for e.g. iptv and pvrinput, I guess these plugins shall use different ones now, since they have different syntax?

On my first thought I considered to take 'A' for 'analog', but since there is something like "ATSC" (and I know nothing about it, if it's supported by vdr or is covered by dvbdevice or whatever), perhaps I should use another one?
 So I think it would be better to take *'V' = 'analog video'*, since pvrinput 
is basically an interface to v4l-devices.

 What are you thinking?
