Oh, hi, Martin! Long time no see.
Are you still using the old softdevice? I would have never guessed
someone is still using it :-)
Yes! I was in "stealth mode" for several years, until I finally upgraded
the software (Debian+VDR) from 2006 less than a year ago.
I tried to contribute some patches to make softdevice work with current
VDR. It seemed that the mailing list archive was corrupted. I have been
thinking of cloning the old CVS repository and committing my patches on
top of it. Not that I expect anyone else to use it. It is mainly for
preserving the history. :) Do you have any tips how to do that?
I'm using an ARM-Based Qnap-NAS as vdr server, it works really well
with an USB DVB-T Dual-Tuner, and xineliboutput. I'm in the process of
upgrading to a Cubietruck and a raspberry pi as client, but due to lack
of time I have not got very far.
OK, I see. I would prefer an all-in-one solution (HDMI output, DVB-T
input, Ethernet and hard disk in a single device). This would seem to be
doable with an ARM board that supports SATA devices. On the RPi I would
not expect it to work, due to everything sharing the single USB bus.
Another interesting development is this plugin that I sometimes use with
my Samsung SmartTV:

only use softdevice on speakerless VGA monitor for cutting recordings.
