I encountered a problem with playing back a particular recording on
Windows over a samba share: ProSieben has a series which they call

(notice the small "r") As a result, VDR created a second folder with the
same name, but different "R"/"r"s.
W2K/XP/Vista are able to view both folders, but they have the same
content (both show the content of the folder with the small "r" in the
name). So, one folder content is not accessible. (BTW: Vista introduced
a funny bug, it shows the folder with the small "r" twice in the tree,
but both different folders in the flat view.)
This happened with --vfat as command line parameter with VDR 1.7.2.
Well, I don't really know if this is a VDR, Samba or Windows problem...
P.S.: I set "case sensitive = yes" in smb.conf. Now Windows can access
both folders in the flat file view on the right with the right content,
but not in the folder tree on the left (folders have still the same
