Even though they'd get lost when VDR writes it, allowing comments there would be an improvement so distros (and VDR itself) could ship the file with some comments in it that instruct users what they need to do before things will work, or what the file is for, or... Same thing applies to remote.conf, setup.conf, and timers.conf. If the "AllowComments" parameter exists just for the purpose of disallowing comments in files where VDR doesn't preserve them, I suggest removing that restriction altogether and allowing comments everywhere. Allowing comments and preserving them are two different things. For files where VDR doesn't preserve them it could note that on the first line of such files, for example like: # Warning: VDR will overwrite this file without preserving comments. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
