> VDR was designed to run on older equipment with limited resources

This is nonsense, like Windows (MCE) VDR can run same hardware with limited 
resources, but with all the same pro's and con's. Actual distros with their 
actual kernels do have the same requirements to hardware. And looking to the 
common DVB stream rates here in Europe, users need appropriate CPU power even 
if they use a hardware decoder. Nobody want to wait 30min until a HD recording 
is cutted ...


Wow, sounds interessting, keep us updated about progress :-)

Subject: Re: [vdr] [ANNOUNCE] VDR successfully ported to Windows


I stopped to use Windows many years ago -- no interest from me for bloatware 
with all it's problems and horrible support.

There are many programs in Windows to watch TV and some is completely free. But 
as you know a huge number of people use pirated software -- I have doubt that 
these people will be interested in your port.

VDR was designed to run on older equipment with limited resources -- Windows 
goes against this policy by definition. VDR was designed for smaller system and 
there is a trend to use it in embedded systems.

 From my past experience (I work as Systems Analyst at one of biggest 
universities of Canada) 85% of Windows users are "mouse monkeys" -- they even 
do not know how to set variable. Do you expect that they will be able to 
configure and dig inside of VDR with it's plugins -- I have big doubts in this
