Hi there,

I made a patch which re-enables the "Streaming Control" menu for the VDR
streamdev plugin from CVS. The key feature of this menu is the "Remote
Timer" functionality.

The "Streaming Control" menu has been commented out in April 2005. A
few changes were necessary to adapt the old code to recent VDR 1.3

The patch also includes the fix for switching transponders if no
idle dvb card is available (as suggested by PanamaJack and possibly

- streamdev from CVS (any snapshot taken after May 2005 should do)
- vdr 1.3.34 (newer vdr version might work - not tested)
- Timers on the server must not be in old format (Day of month only)

You will find the patch at
