The new version 0.98 of the Video Disk Recorder project is now
Completed storing the current audio volume in the setup.conf file (thanks
to Andy Grobb).
Fixed closing the progress display with the "Back" key when in trick mode
and Setup.ShowReplayMode is enabled (thanks to Stefan Huelswitt).
New SVDRP commands LSTR and DELR to list and delete recordings (thanks to
Fixed a crash when pressing the '2' button while replaying a DVD.
Updated 'channels.conf' for the "Bundesliga" channels of Premiere World
(thanks to Mel Schächner).
Changed the tuning code to use FrontendInfo to detect the type of DVB card.
Removed the recursion stuff from cThread (cMutex already does this).
Fixed handling the repeat function in the channel display.
Avoiding multiple EPG entries for the same event (thanks to Rolf Hakenes
for some valuable information on how to do this).
A recording on the primary interface can now be stopped to make it continue
on an other free DVB card (if one is free at the moment). See MANUAL for
Added some missing teletext PIDs (thanks to Norbert Schmidt).
Added PTS to the converted PCM audio when replaying a DVD (thanks to Andreas
Schultz). Now the audio and video of a DVD replayed over the DVB card's A/V
out should always be in sync.
Fixed handling the "Power" key in case Setup.MinUserInactivity is set to 0 to
disable automatic shutdown.
Added a fifth parameter to the 'shutdown' call that indicates the reason for
this shutdown request (see INSTALL).
Fixed releasing 'index' memory after recording or playback.
Fixed ejecting a DVD while it is being replayed.
Removed all video overlay stuff from cDvbApi and SVDRP. Guido Fiala's new
'kvdr' version 0.4 now does these things itself. As a consequence of this you
will now need to use kvdr 0.4 or later.
The device /dev/video is now opened only if necessary (to GRAB an image),
allowing other programs (like 'kvdr', for instance) to use that device.
Thanks Klaus and the many contributors!
