What i said above is AFAIK more or less undocumented up to now. But it seems to be a consensus between most driver developers now. Yes vdr needs to change to handle this devices properly based on the previous assumptions, i think soneone else can be more helpful than me ;). _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
