The VDR 1.7.x development line has already seen some deep limitations of 
VDR going away, or will soon. And even more groundbreaking changes are 
already on the agenda. Together with HD devices, the SD limited OSD 
structures will surely have to change too. So just be patient, there's 
lots of change ahead, but: Important things first!

Cheers,
