Hi Klaus,

Could you please delete line 577 from vdr.c or do something similar to

If you prefer, I can write a better patch: stop if not readable, warn if
not writable.

I'm afraid we're too close to releasing version 2.0.0 to make such
changes now.

Besides, why don't you just use a writeable video directory and mount
your read-only directory below that? Something like
