I was wondering if it would make sense to offer a place for VDR users
using the sky_uk/freesat/S28.2E/freeview platforms to communicate with
each other. The intention is that people can discuss their special needs
like freesat EPG, red button stuff, channel lists, channel logos and all
other things and test new inventions (like the red button extension)

Being a frequent user of freesat channels myself and being a member of
the developers behind the yaVDR distribution (www.yavdr.org), I would
like to offer to you to open up an English language community forum on
our yaVDR board located at forum.yavdr.com <http://forum.yavdr.com>.
This board is currently mostly used by our development team for internal
discussions, so there is not much to see there for external visitors yet.

Please don't get me wrong: I don't want to drag away developer
discussions from this mailing list, it's more a forum where developers
and users who share the same topics (freesat/freeview/SKY_UK) can
communicate and solve problems related to VDR together. And knowledge
could be made more accessible for new VDR users.

Maybe this could also be a good starting point for building up an
English language VDR user community forum - starting off with UK/Ireland
users. I always thought an English language community was missing next
to the German language VDR portal (www.vdr-portal.de

If some of you guys here are interested in such a place, please give me
a short reply. It only takes me a couple of minutes to set up a new area
on the forum. Or is there already a forum in place?

If that is the case, can you add a US / ATSC / PVRInput section too. I get the feeling there are only three people using VDR in the US.. :-) Although it could be good to share..
