Thanks! This is great news! All our - forgotten - favorite plugins
being updated on one place.

BTW, does this mean we're finally going to have a community developed
VDR with all those features everybody asks for? Like... features
*nobody* misses? Features like "I have a FF card, so why the hell
would I want GPU based decoding?" Or "My eHD does it!" Or "No HD
interest here..."

BTW, this all sounds like a Nike commercial.

This is all sarcasm, people. But as soon as XBMC works reasonably well
with DVB, or with a minimal version of VDR, as Goga777 showed on the
link sent above, bye-bye VDR as stand-alone. It's that simple.

By this pace, VDR is death. The "I don't need it!" excuse just doesn't
cut it anymore. And it's really sad. VDR is a *fantastic* peace of
software.

Yeah! I know! Let the flamewars begin (or you can write something constructive).
