The compile time selection between multiproto and normal drivers (as 
done in Udo's dvb-api-emulate patch) could be used from now on. I don't 
see any reason to freeze the development at this phase.

The completition of H.264 support would be nice to have in next stable 
version.  The H.264 support isn't related only to DVB-S2 as it's used 
already in many DVB-C and DVB-T networks nowadays.

Also, I'd vote for making the recording format selectable, PES or TS, as 
it would make the postprocessing of VDR files with existing 
Windows/Linux tools a lot easier.
