Ideally you should be able to run VDR 24/7 without issue. That's what I do and have no intention of changing the habit. Unfortunately softhddevice is no longer actively developed by its' author but there are still some coders in the VDR community who have helped keep it updated. It's possible they may be able to help fix this bug if enough information can be provided. In my cause the frozen/defunct VDR seems to occur if I lose signal for some unknown length of time, and doesn't seem related to audio. Fortunately it's the only problem I have and it doesn't happen daily. It would however be great if it were fixed - hopefully we'll get to that point. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
