vdr: VDR developer version 2.3.3

Added by tadi over 1 year ago


This is a developer version. Even though I use it in my productive
environment, I strongly recommend that you only use it under controlled
conditions and for testing and debugging.

From the HISTORY file:

Version 2.3.3

  • Added 'S3W ABS-3A' to sources.conf (thanks to Frank Richter).
  • Fixed a possible deadlock in the recordings handler thread.
  • Updated the Russian OSD texts (thanks to Andrey Pridvorov).
  • Added a missing dependency to the Makefile to avoid error messages in the
    clean-plugins target (thanks to Tobias Grimm).
  • The channel/CAM relations (i.e. the information which CAM can decrypt a given
    channel) are now stored in the file '' in the cache directory (suggested
    by Dietmar Spingler). This speeds up switching to encrypted channels after
    newly starting VDR, in case there is more than one CAM in the system.
  • Fixed a flaw in handling timeouts for encrypted channels.
  • The mechanism of trying different CAMs when switching to an encrypted channel is
    now only triggered if there acually is more than one CAM in the system.
  • Fixed updating the elapsed/remaining time in the progress display during fast
  • Changed 'unsigned' to 'signed' in some places to avoid trouble with abs() in
    gcc6+ (reported by Derek Kelly).
  • CAMs that can handle multiple devices at the same time can now indicate this
    by creating the first cCamSlot as usual, and every other cCamSlot by giving
    it the first one as its "MasterSlot". To VDR this means that when searching
    for a CAM that can decrypt a particular channel, it only needs to ask the
    master CAM slot whether it is suitable for decrypting, and can skip all the
    other slots belonging to the same master. This can greatly speed up channel
    switching on systems with more than one CAM (that can handle multiple devices).
  • The LCARS skin now displays the master CAM's number when a device is tuned to
    an encrypted channel.
  • The Setup/CAM menu now only displays master CAMs.
  • Fixed setting the local machine's SVDRP host name (was overwritten if setup.conf
    contained an empty string).
  • PIDs can now be added to and deleted from a cReceiver while it is attached to
    a cDevice, without having to detach it first and re-attach it afterwards.
  • Implemented support for MTD ("Multi Transponder Decryption"). This allows a CAM
    that is capable of decrypting more than one channel ("Multi Channel Decryption")
    to decrypt channels from different transponders. See the remarks in mtd.h on
    what a derived cCamSlot class needs to do in order to activate MTD (thanks to
    Jasmin Jessich for writing the ddci2 plugin and for valuable input and help
    with testing and debugging).
  • The function cRingBufferLinear::Clear() can now be called safely from the
    reading thread, without additional locking.
  • Now stopping any ongoing recordings before stopping the plugins, to avoid
    a crash when stopping VDR while recording.

vdr-convert: vdr-convert version 2 released

Added by keynet over 1 year ago

There are several significant new features:

  • Option to convert to H265/HEVC via new -v switch, with potential for file size 1/2 of H264, 1/4 of MPEG2
  • Multiple format options in single-use/batch modes via -f flag: avi, mkv, mp4, mov, m2ts, ts, aac, m4a and mp3
  • Added support for Fraunhofer AAC codec and libmp3lame codec for mp3 via new -a switch
  • Added automatic conversion of AC3/DTS streams in VDR1.x recordings
  • Added automatic conversion of editing marks to .edl files for Kodi, mplayer in single-use mode
  • Info, warn and error criticality for different types of problems + optional email at criticality "error"
  • Conversion runtime + realtime/runtime ratio logged

+Various other fixes and improvements; todo's cleared

Project Management: Spam cleanup

Added by etobi over 1 year ago

I did some spam cleanup on today. There was a lot of spam in news-comments. I hope I've catched all spam, if not, please let me know.

All spam-users and inactive users which haven't created any kind content have been deleted as well.

I might have deleted some "false positives". If you are missing something, please let me know and I will try to recover it from the backup.

If your account was deleted and you can't login anymore, please let me know or just register again.

Right now registration requires manual confirmation by the administrator, until I've found a suitable solution to avoid spam users (most likely a captcha).
