Thanks for this information, seems you know better than I do mplayer and all its
functionnality. I have try many time psprobe option but still same result,
meaning my mplayer is too old to do that.
Most important is to keep ability to convert my recording, even if not coming
from vdr and continue to watch / record HD with vdr
Have a good day
