Hi Andrew and the other VDR users,
I am looking into using LinuxMCE as my new Videosystem and offcourse all the other goodies that comes with it
and have got a couple of quistions that I think is ok placed here in this thread.
A little about my background : I am already using VDR at the moment , on my system it is compiled from the sources including a lots of plugins + patches. I have been using VDR for around 6 years and I am very pleased with what it does - it runs very stable and has loads of nice plugins
I have a couple of questions
A. If I read your description of the buttons correctly, then the OSD menu of VDR is used while in TV mode - is this correctly ?
B. So the VDR menu is also used to start playback the recordings ?
C. And Recordings are done using VDR Timers ?
D. Where is the EPG stored ? In the mysql database or in the epg.data of VDR (or both)
E. Does this mean that one could use Epgsearch for programming timers (veeeery nice plugin for that) ?
F. And VDR plugins could be used ? (I did not find anything for writing/creating a DVD yet - but maybe I just did not find it
G. How about recording and playback of H.264 (DVB-S2) is that possible at the moment/with the next update ?
H. what are the channel switching times (zapping
) with local DVB-S cards in MD and when only the server has some ?
I. What patches are included in the VDR version ?
The rest of my questions I will ask in a new thread later as it is more general questions
