Of course not all TV remotes are the same, and different TVs > have different ideas about which buttons to pass through... Oooo...not come across CEC before: will have to look into it... I see that OSD is a work-in-progress but presumably it will be its own OSD (like the MediaMVPs) rather than "forwarding" the standard vdr OSD. The thing I always missed from the MediaMVPs was the inability to interact with plugins like epgsearch. At the price of these things, I suspect I'll be getting one to test this anyway! And I suspect lots of people who bought them initially have discovered that they are not quite the computing experience they expected and will be moving them on cheaply...! ;-) Cheers, Laz _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
