I agree with you Luca. I had an email conversation (in Swedish) with 
Ragnar a year ago and he said he doesn't use VDR anymore, so it's not 
likely we'll to hear anything from him here again. I don't know what the 
situation is in Germany, but if Claus will eventually integrate 
Teletext+subs in the VDR core that's the best solution for us in Sweden.
