Just curious what you think VDR lacks or is unstable in regarding
hdtv?  The only current problems I'm aware of are:

- Xine will freeze when you are rewinding a VDR recording and then
press play or right-arrow for example, but this is a bug in xine, not
VDR.

- VDR reporting incorrect runtime in h264 recordings.  Klaus has
worked on this and it's _much_ better now.  If the runtime is
incorrect, it's usually only off by up to +10 minutes or so, not
several hours as it used to be.

- Some people have problems playing VDR recordings in other players
outside of VDR but again, not really a bug in VDR since VDR recordings
are intended to be played within VDR.

Maybe there are other issues but I don't know about them.  The one
that actually is an issue with VDR (incorrect runtimes), isn't even
significant.

Cheers
