i'm not into dvb-s2 yet.
Without talking about this hype technology, what about :
- multiple frontend+osd support
- complex channel handling (no no not talking about xml, i hate xml)
- sourcecap patch (having to patch vdr for such a feature is a no-go
  for a lot of people)

I tend to agree, in the end a lot of people will move to
bloat^Wmythtv. (and i agree, a lot of people have stopped using vdr)
