Displaying a still image is a pretty tricky thing.
VDR can't use the original driver ioctl() call for this, because
for reasons I don't know the driver doesn't display VDR's I-frames
as still images. So VDR sends the I-frame several times (which basically
is the same thing the driver does, so yet another reason why I can't
understand why the driver doesn't display VDR's I-frames...) to fill
up the driver's buffers far enough so that it displays the frame.
This is a pretty dirty workaround, but I never found a better way
to make it work.
Well, that doesn't explain why it doesn't work with the 2.5 kernel.
But then again, I just don't know...
