I've always built vdr and a range of plugins from source, all under 
Debian. I've just been browsing the contents of your repository and I see 
that you do have what looks like most of the plugins I'm currently using 
in there. One question before I test your pre-compiled version...

I'm currently using the softdevice plugin but I've never managed to get it 
to work with any versions of vdr newer than 1.7.0 (probably due to the 
change to TS). You have the softdevice built against vdr-1.7.16 in your 
repository. Does this work properly or has it just that it compiles and 
hasn't been widely tested?

I think all I ever got was a black screen whenever I tried to build CVS 
softdevice against anything newer than 1.7.0!

I also have another plugin which controls some LEDs hung of the parallel 
port which light up when recordings are active, etc. (based on a plugin I 
found years back which I'm pretty sure is no longer developed). How easy 
is it to combine a single plugin built from source into a .deb based
