Pünktlich zum Sonntag Nachmittag erscheint die Version 1.3.3:
VDR developer version 1.3.3 is now available at
Well, it's not too much this time - mainly some preparations for
multiple audio language handling. Note that this is not finished yet!
It's just some of the foundations that will be used later. Just
thought I'd make another "sunday release" for those interested in
doing bleeding edge testing...
Before using this version, please make sure you read the file
README.developer (which is contained in this archive). Also, please
don't use this version in your "productive" environment (unless you
know what you're doing , because it automatically changes the
'channels.conf' file and the changed file might not work with older
versions of VDR.
Note that due to the new transponder scanning the number of channels
may increase dramatically, and so may the amount of EPG data.
Set the "Setup/DVB/Update channels" option to a smaller value if you
don't want to get new transponders or channels.
The changes since version 1.3.2
- Completed the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Added ISO639LanguageDescriptor to 'libsi'.
- Changed the 'languageCode' members in the descriptor classes of 'libsi' to
'char' and setting the 4th byte to 0 for easier handling.
- Fixed frequency handling when setting the CA descriptors in cDvbTuner::Action()
(thanks to Jan Ekholm for reporting and helping to debug this one).
- Now setting CA descriptors even if "Setup/DVB/Update channels" is less than 2.
- There can now be up to 32 audio and Dolby PIDs (however, currently still only
the first two are used throughout the rest of the program).
- The audio and Dolby PIDs in 'channels.conf' now can have an optional language
code (see man vdr(5)). Currently this is only stored and not yet used otherwise.
- Added a call to cStatus::MsgOsdCurrentItem() to cMenuEditItem::SetValue()
(thanks to Martin Hammerschmid).
The DVB driver I am currently using can be found at
which is the CVS 'HEAD' version from 2003-11-08, made available as a complete
archive for your convenience. Of course, you can also use any newer version from
