Hello,

I installed vdr-1.7.6 + reelbox plugin a week ago using:
http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/OpenSUSE_VDR_DVB-S2#openSUSE_VDR_DVB-S2_-_Teil2.1:_eHD
which propably is the one you are refering to. Then I applied the vdr-1.7.6-1.7.7.diff
patch which worked except that I had to change the osd.h file a little for the patch
to run without complaints. There is some memory leak problem with vdr-1.7.7 but
Klaus is looking into it, see: http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/vdr/2009-May/020636.html

Reelbox plugin still occasionally freezes, but so it has always done.
The reelbox plugin is of course a joke and I deeply regret buying the
card from Reel-Multimedia. Hopefully the VDPAU is more promising.

BR,

Josce
