Hi Goga,

I am planing upgrade to vdr-1.7.4 this week, so I dont know actually.

But I am using vdr-1.7.0 and there is possible to watch HDTV channels
(for example astra 23.5E Nova HD, Eurosport HD).

One problem is random SIGSEGV on vdr with streamdev-server and sc
plugin, but it can be solved with never-end while loop  :) It happens
while switching channels - clients are VLC or popcornhour. So bug is
probably on the vdr side.

Big problem is randoming popcornhour freezing while watching stream -
it needs turn popcornhour off and on again.

But I have solved long buffering times on popcornhour - i have created
custom html page and in hyperlinks must be with VOD attribute:
<A href="..." VOD>...</A>

Regards Tomas
