I've been testing softhddevice basically since I first saw this thread. I never heard of softhddevice before that. So far it works fairly well. There are a few issues to sort out (such as issues ffw/rew h264 recordings, allowing users to set the color of the non-video area *for plasma tv users, etc) but overall it's off to a great start imo. Also, the issues I've found also existed and were fixed in vdr-xine so I'm confident they could be fixed in softhddevice as well. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
