Hi,

I am attaching a patch for vdr 1.7.23 for the problem described here:
http://www.vdr-portal.de/board1-news/board2-vdr-news/p1047199-announce-vdr-developer-version-1-7-23/#post1047199

There appears to be a problem in listing recordings due to a bug fix
in vdr 1.7.23. "Fixed handling symbolic links in
cRecordings::ScanVideoDir()"

The attached patch just disables the translation of symbolic links to
"real" paths. So that all recordings appear to be under the same
(recordings) directory tree, as it was earlier.

Please reply with your results.

Thanks,
Sundararaj
