It was a kind of a revelation to come upon VDR years ago, when I first
met this great piece of software. It revealed that the change from
analog to digital TV was not just for the worse, but in many ways for
the better as well. So thank you Klaus for your great work (not
forgetting others contributing) for letting as enjoy the best digital TV
software there is. And bringing about a hobby that has consumed more
hours than I care to count... And I don't mean the time spent watching TV :)
