Vdr channel switching problem
« on: April 27, 2016, 09:30:04 pm »
I have trouble with VDR. When trying to watch TV on my Hybrid (running 14.04) it shows the splashscreen of VDR...and sits there until I start changing to channel 1. However there are a number of channels that I cannot use anymore for some reason.
I tried to solve this with posde in the chat, but so far was all working until about 3/4 days ago..
changing values for epg-scan in the background or even disabling it altogether did not bring any change about.
If anyone of you guys has any insights, please share it with me :-)

There haven't been any changes in the last few days to 1404 debs, so if it worked before, it must be something local that has changed.

PS: I missed one file. You need three files to get the update of EPG information on the Orbiter --> into /usr/lib/vdr/plugins ---> amend and put into /etc/vdr/conf.d/

and --> into /usr/pluto/bin/ (and make executable)
