Didn't think to check that! Certainly explains some strange behaviour whilst I was editing them
So does that mean that it is "active" in the sense that I edit that file, and it will have the effect on LMCE, or is LMCE preconfiguring these parameters and ignoring the file? Just don't want to be tinkering with files that aren't even being read as part of the implementation!
You need to edit that file to set the vdr options you require... ie the de-interlace options in this case. Before you edit it do the following;
sudo /etc/init.d/vdr stop <return>
now... edit... the conf file;
sudo joe /var/lib/vdr/setup.conf <return> **joe is the editor I like... change to editor of your choice ;-) **
make changes for de-interlace... and save changes!
now restart vdr...
sudo /etc/init.d/vdr start <return>
back to Orbiter and select 'TV' to see if live tv is now de-interlaced
the vdr used in beta3 is totally standard so just follow the standard vdr setup to configure it in the conf files. We are working on bringing this configuration into the Orbiter... then editing conf's will not be needed.
