If you use a full featured DVB card for replay you need the DVB driver version from
in order to replay TS recordings!
Users of full featured DVB cards also need to use a new firmware, available at
Note that the header files in the latest driver versions may be broken. If you get compiler error messages like
/usr/include/sys/types.h:52: error: conflicting declaration 'typedef __ino64_t ino_t'
/usr/include/linux/types.h:14: error: 'ino_t' has a previous declaration as 'typedef __kernel_ino_t ino_t'
when compiling VDR, you need to put the driver header files back to how they were before they got broken. One way of doing this is to apply the patch from
(I'm not claiming that this is the right way to fix this, since the driver developers may have had good reasons for making that change. However, both the driver and VDR compile and work fine with this).
From the HISTORY file:
- The new function
cDevice::GetVideoSize()returns the size and aspect ratio
of the video material currently displayed. This function is used to determine
the proper size of the OSD. Plugin authors should implement this function in
classes derived from cDevice, if they are able to replay video.
- The OSD and font sizes are now defined in percent of the actual video display
size. The maximum OSD size has been raised to 1920x1080, to allow full
screen OSD on HD systems.
- The OSD size is now automatically adjusted to the actual video display
(provided the output device implements the GetVideoSize() function).
cFrameDetector::Analyze()now syncs on the TS packet sync bytes (thanks to
Oliver Endriss for reporting broken index generation after a buffer overflow).
