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.
