Today I announced this version in the german vdrportal forum. The last time I
announced a new pvr350 plugin-version here in the ML was June 2007. So it is
time to write here again to keep the non-german-speaking users informed.
The pvr350-plugin implements an output device for the PVR350 TV out, using the
hardware mpeg2 decoder.
Look into the HISTORY for the many changes since June 2007.
Attention: The plugin does not work properly with vdr 1.7.1:
vdr now simply strips the TS headers and sends the payload to the usual
PlayVideo() and PlayAudio() functions. The PES packets have no longer a size
of 2kB, and the PES audio ID is always 0. The pvr350 hardware decoder and/or
the ivtv driver cannot handle this. We would need a lot of additional code -
time will see ...
For watching analogue TV from the tuner of the PVR350 you need a second plugin
as input device. This is pvrinput, and as there is also a new version, I will
announce it in a separate mail.
