[vdr] Re: DVD playback problems
The symptoms you describe are completly normal for the current state of
the DVD support.
The additional features of a DVD, like interviews/making of/outtakes
mostly use special navigation features, additional menues, still frames,
and so on. All those feature are not supported yet. Also, some of the
Title entries you see in vdr's DVD menue, realy refer to menu sequences
and therefore need special treatment as well.
All those things will hopefully be available soon - lets say in two
month time. Until then, you just have to live with it.
Watch this list for news on the improved DVD support ;-)
