The crashing problem would be better address by making it part of VDR. I am trying to make scripts to use Schedules Direct because even if VDR was picking up what the broadcasters send, the broadcasters themselves are unreliable and half assed at sending eit. But if the seg fault when trying to scan for new channels where fixed, that would help.

It would be nice to have its functions moved to VDR and then just dump
the plugin. It served it's purpose when ATSC was just starting to be
used, but it's time to build it in instead of it being an after thought.

I don't think that problems would be fixed any better if this were
part of the official VDR code. If the original author no longer maintains
the code, somebody else should take over and fix it.
VDR is mainly written for the *DVB* standard. Anything else should be
