I absolutely cannot use VDR without the SourceCaps patch, since I
have 3 DVB-S cards connected to 2 different dishes.

I also kind of like my own "delete_resume" patch which dramatically
reduces the number of redundant resume.vdr files. See my posting
from March 3rd, 2005. Of course, that patch is just "nice to have",
not "cannot live without it".

I guess there will be many people who require one or another patch
before they can use vdr.

Any ideas?
