ACK.

VDR is very nice. I've been using it for years now. But it is still very
much tech focused in many areas. E.g. cutting recordings is way too
complicated for non-tech persons.

I'd also like to see option where live-tv pause can be enabled/disabled.
It has seldom been a problem but the whole feature is not usable for our
usage.

It seriously would not hurt VDR if there were Help pages available via
OSD. Yes, there are man-pages but my guess is that very very few end
users will actually go to terminal to check man-pages if they have some
problems with VDR how to do something. They just don't bother. And this
is request for Klaus because he's the author of the VDR thus should keep
the help pages of VDR up-to-date. And preferably all plugin developers
would do the same.

Br, Pasi
