Hi Teemu,

I'm using the patch based on patch from Seppo Ingalsuo (see 
http://patchwork.linuxtv.org/patch/12911/) - this version I'm used now 
with vdr-1.7.27 together with yaVDR, but have info that it works also 
with later versions. Patch integrate gotoxx into VDR and works without 
problems.

Regards,

Ales
