It startet on January 18th, 2004 with a posting by Christian Schuld
(the patch author).
I posted a version on April 6th, 2005, that was adopted to the latest
VDR, see attachment.

It started on January 30th, 2005.
I posted it again on March 21st.
See second attachment.

Klaus, as I said above, on a system without diseqc and with more than
one dish, I believe Christian's SourceCaps patch is a must.
It's also not very complicated and thus should not impose a high
risk of breaking something in vdr.

My patch is just a performance optimization. On a system with very
many recordings, it can become quite significant, though.
It is even smaller than the SourceCaps patch, though
and thus should not impose any risk of breaking something in vdr.

So, can you please, please, please include these two in the next VDR
version? :-)
