Interesting work. I live in the UK and have an HVR4000 for DVB-S.
Unfortunately DVB-T reception is poor where I live (hence the satellite
solution - additional multilnb to point at 28.2E and 13.0E for L'Eridita) so I
cannot fully test this past patching and compiling which I assume will work as
you state you have tested.
Looking at the patch, there is something about inhibit epgscan. I do not know
much about vdr internals. Would patching vdr and enabling the ondemand option
stop epg from updating? A slight negative if this is the case.
