Hi,

I would like to get a HDTV VDR system started.
I have the following hardware to play with:
   gigabyte m55plus s3g main board (nVidia GeForce 6100 / nForce 430)
   with Athlon 64 3500+, 1GB RAM
   GeForce 9500GT card with 1GB RAM
   2 TT-budget S2-3200 DVB S2 cards
I have installed OpenSuse 11.1 on it, which comes with
vdr 1.6.0, the xine 0.8.2 plugin and dvb-1.1.0_CVS20080331-1.48.

Is there a "getting started with HDTV VDR" FAQ somewhere?

My first 3 questions questions are

* Will a new VDR version be released today?
  The latest I could find is 1.7.7 (3 weeks old).

* Where do I find the right DVB driver?

* How do I configure LIRC, so it works with the S3-3200
  and the remote control included with it?

Thanks in advance for any hints,
Carsten.
