VDR developer version 1.3.32 is now available at


A 'diff' against the previous version is available at


The changes since version 1.3.31:

- Added some missing braces in remux.c (thanks to Wayne Keer for reporting this one).
- Removed unused MAINMENUENTRY from svdrpdemo.c (thanks to Udo Richter for reporting
   this one).
- Fixed appending sequence end code in cDvbPlayer::Goto() (thanks to Reinhard Nissl).
- Fixed syncing in cRepacker (thanks to Reinhard Nissl).
- Now always using stream id 0xE0 for the video stream, to avoid problems with
   post processing tools that choke on different ids (suggested by Reinhard Nissl).
- Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
- Fixed cDvbPlayer::SkipFrames() to properly handle radio recordings (thanks to
   Reinhard Nissl).
- Updated the Swedish OSD texts (thanks to Tomas Prybil).
- Updated the Slovenian OSD texts (thanks to Matjaz Thaler).
- Updated the Danish OSD texts (thanks to Mogens Elneff).
- Made LIRC command parsing more robust (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Introduced a separate 'plugins-install' target in the Makefile (thanks to Daniel
- Re-introduced the code that waits for a tuner lock in VDR/device.c, since
   apparently some users actually need it. It's not active by default, you'll have
   to define the WAIT_FOR_TUNER_LOCK macro in that file if you need it (suggested
   by Malcolm Caldwell).
- Adjusted the Makefile to the dvb-kernel driver on kernel 2.6 and up (thanks to
   Lauri Tischler).
- Repeat keys are now ignored when waiting for a keypress to cancel an operation
   (thanks to Marko Mäkelä).
- The main menu function of a plugin can now be activated through a key macro of
   the form "@plugin" even if that plugin doesn't have a main menu entry (using
   part of a patch by Hardy Flor, which originally implemented calling plugins from
- The menu timeout handling is now done centrally in the main program loop.
- Added missing help for the 'help' keyword in the SVDRP command PLUG.
- The main menu function of a plugin can now be called programmatically through
   the static function cRemote::CallPlugin().
- The SVDRP command PLUG now has a new option 'main' which can be used to initiate
   a call to the main menu function of a plugin (using part of a patch by Hardy Flor).
- The new command line option '--vfat' can be used to make VDR encode special
   characters in recording file names, even if it wasn't compiled with VFAT=1
   (suggested by Peter Bieringer). The compile time option VFAT still exists and
   creates a VDR that always behaves as if it were called with '--vfat'.
- Replaced the ':' delimiter between hour and minute in recording file names with
   a '.' under Linux, too. Existing recordings with ':' as delimiter will still work.
- Implemented the SVDRP command MOVC (thanks to Andreas Brachold).
- Added support for multiple audio language codes in ISO639LanguageDescriptors to
   'libsi' (thanks to Marcel Wiesweg).
- Changed the audio PID language codes to hold up to two 3 letter codes, separated
   by '+', to store separate languages broadcast in two channel audio mode.
- If the preferred audio language is broadcast on a PID that has two different
   languages in the two stereo channels, the audio channel is now properly set when
   switching to such a channel (thanks to Mogens Elneff for his help in testing this).
- Fixed some typos in MANUAL (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Fixed the default value for "Setup/EPG bugfix level" (thanks to Ville Skyttä for
   reporting this one).
- Fixed defining timers that only differ in the day of week (thanks to Patrick
   Rother for reporting this one).
- Fixed converting summary.vdr files that would result in a very long 'short text'
   (thanks to Carsten Koch).
- Implemented a hash for the channels to reduce the system load in the EIT scanning
   thread (based on a patch by Georg Acher).

Have fun!
