Yes, it still happens on every firmware revision. But, I really dont think this
is a firmware issue as much as it is a VDR one. There must be several ways to
approach this problem but the best way would be an open source solution IMHO. If
mplayer can successfully forward the video every time straight to the FF card
w/o any transcoding, then why cant VDR do the same thing? Im sure someone can
post links to problematic recordings if you need some to test with.
