My DeepBlue has never shown any info for recordings, so I've thought that VDR 
didn't save it. But lo and hebold as "soppalusikka" shows the info just as it 
was in the EPG at the time of recording. Haven't seen any announcements for 
any new versions of DeepBlue either. I use version 1.0 of text2skin, which is 
the last released one (a year ago, so it's no wonder it b0rked). Tracking CVS 
versions of stuff is a swamp of fun and broken toys and frustrated users. :)

"soppalusikka" doesn't show any channel logos although they are installed as 
per instructions, but I haven't dug into that too much.

    Pets are always a great help in times of stress. And in times of 
    starvation too, o'course.
