VDR now requires driver version 0.9.0 or higher.
Switched to the new DVB driver API.
New setup parameter "LnbSLOF" that defines the switching frequency of the LNB.
Fixed a bug in the EPG scanner with more than one DVB card.
Fixed checking for free disk space, so that it works with NFS mounted drives.
Files are now created with mode 644.
Fixed checking the exit status in the 'runvdr' script.
Activated loading the driver in 'runvdr'. Please read the comments in 'runvdr'
The new "emergency exit" feature automatically triggers a restart of VDR if
something goes wrong during a recording.
Processing the EIT data is now disabled during replay and 'Transfer Mode' in
order to avoid video and audio glitches.
Due to the reduced amount of OSD memory provided by the driver the number of
lines in the OSD had to be reduced by 2.
There are two new setup parameters to define the "Default Priority" and
"Default Lifetime" when creating a new timer event.
The meaning of the "Lifetime" parameter has been modified to allow recordings
to live "forever" or to use priority controlled file deletion.
Updated version of the 'schnitt' tools.
New 'master-timer' tool.
