hi John!

sounds really great!
Unfortunately this is not working with my vdr 1.7.17.
Compiling all works fine as in your instructions.
But if I include both plugins with -Predbutton and -Pmheg I can't connect to xineliboutput any more. :(

Anybody knows what modifications are needed to fix this issue?

kind regards
