I am attaching a patch for vdr 1.7.23 for the problem described here:

There appears to be a problem in listing recordings due to a bug fix
in vdr 1.7.23. "Fixed handling symbolic links in

The attached patch just disables the translation of symbolic links to
"real" paths. So that all recordings appear to be under the same
(recordings) directory tree, as it was earlier.

Please reply with your results.

Can somebody who has actually this use case please confirm
whether this patch fixes the problem?


Without this patch, symbolic links are not displayed
correctly on my machine.



I believe the second call to stat() is now superfluous.
Can you please confirm that the following patch still works
as expected?

Yes, it does not make any difference here.

Well, with this patch, symbolic links are not displayed at all on my VDR machine, whereas with sundararaj reel's fix they are displayed correctly.
