VDR maintenance patch 1.4.1-5 is now available at


This is a 'diff' against version 1.4.1-4 (which is the official
version 1.4.1, patched with
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-3.diff and

Small fixes to the officially released VDR versions will be first
made available as "maintenance patches" in the Developer directory,
so that they can be reviewed and tested before a new official
release is published.

So please apply the above patch and report whether it works (or
if it causes any new problems).

Originally I wanted to release an official 1.4.2 today, but then
a few things came up that I also wanted to go into the new version.
Now hopefully this version will prove stable and can be officially
released next sunday ;-)

The changes since version 1.4.1-4:

- Replaced the "quick workaround for additional live audio PIDs" in
   cDvbDevice::SetChannelDevice() with an actual solution in
   cDvbDevice::SetAudioTrackDevice() in order to prevent sticky PIDs in CAMs,
   which caused long switching times or completely blank screens when switching
   between encrypted channels on the same transponder (reported by Tomas Berglund).
- Adapted cThread::ThreadId() to recent kernels (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Added --remove-destination to the 'cp' command for binaries in the Makefile to
   avoid a crash in case a new version is installed on a running system (suggested
   by Petri Hintukainen).
- Fixed handling "Ca Info" in case the CAM sends this again if the smart card is
   replaced with a different one.

Have fun!
