Yes, i guess it does, cause it writes to the hdd:s surface constantly in
large amounts...


But back to my original question. Could someone who is more familiar to
c-programming and knows how VDR works check out the LiveBUffer patch and
add a these few new features to it? I would love to get warned if i
change the channel in the middle of watching a program from the
buffer...! :-)

This would be more important feature if the buffer is in RAM, and not on
the HDD. If i really missed something important, then I just check it
with eg. VLC over a a samba-export..

Regards,

René
