Hi,

just upgraded my VDR from SL9.0 and vdr-1.3.15 to SL9.3 and vdr-1.3.27, the
main reason being the recent DVD plugin which requires at least 1.3.18. AC3
5.1 sound from DVD is the motivation (AC3overDVB thanks to Werner's
firmware patches). Works fine.

But the rest is sorta unstable. Vdr keeps crashing every other 15 seconds,
but not always. Sometines it runs stably for hours. lcdproc-0.0.10 keeps
crashing vdr-1.3.27 consistently, nothing usable in the logs with "-l 3". I
reported the SIGINT issue already. 

The best thing so far is this combo doesn't run well with the 128MB the
machine has right now. Vdr will start, then the box runs immediately out of
memory, vdr crashes, etc. I had to activate swap. Guess I'll get another
128 megs. 

vdr-1.3.27 now says "ERROR: unknown config parameter:" to the following
parms - did so much change? 

BootForSwitchTimer = 0
CaCaps = 1 101 102
ChannelLogo = 1
ConfirmSwitchTimers = 0
ConfirmSwitchTimersTimeout = 30
DisableVPS = 0
DoubleEpgAction = 0
DoubleEpgTimeDelta = 15
JumpPlay = 0
LoadMarksInterval = 0
LocalChannelProvide = 1
LogoColorScheme = 1
MenuCmdPosition = 0
MenuCommandPos = 1
MixEpgAction = 0
noEPG = 
OSDxoffset = 0 
PlayJump = 0
PreferredChannel = 0
ProgressBar = 1
RecordDolbyDigital = 1
ShowProgressBar = 0
ShowRecDate = 1
ShowRecLength = 0
ShowRecPathLength = 25
ShowRecTime = 1
ShowRecType = 1
ShowWeekdays = 1
SmallFonts = 0
SortRecords = 0
SortSwitchTimersSep = 1
StartupVolume = 255
Symbol = 1
Theme = 2
TimeBar = 1
TrayOpenOnBegin = 1
TrayOpenOnEnd = 1
WarEagleIcons = 1
streamdev-client.RemoteTimers = 1
streamdev-client.StreamPIDS = 0

(streamdev is the CVS checkout as of last Sunday). 

Huh? 

Any insight is appreciated...
