VDR developer version 1.3.41 is now available at


A 'diff' against the previous version is available at


The changes since version 1.3.40:

- EPG events from epg.data or SVDRP's PUTE command now have their Title set to
   "No Title" if none was set.
- Fixed checking toFile in cCuttingThread::Action() (found in a larger patch from
   Artur Skawina).
- Fixed a crash when pressing '0' in the "Schedule" menu on a channel that doesn't
   have any EPG data (reported ny Alexander Hans).
- Updated the Danish OSD texts (thanks to Mogens Elneff).
- Fixed a missing ',' in the Greek OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
- Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
- Fixed handling the tfRecording flag when reading timers (bug reported by Andreas
- Now checking whether the channel exists before setting the PMT filter in
   cPatFilter::Process() (thanks to Thomas Bergwinkl).
- Now trying to reestablish the connection to the LIRC daemon in case it breaks
   (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Fixed channel switching with the Down (Up) key in case the current channel is
   already the first (last) in the list (reported by Frank Krömmelbein).
- Removed the "buffer reserve" in Transfer Mode - it's no longer necessary with
   recent driver/firmware versions.
- The epg.data file is now written when VDR exits (suggested by Daniel Karsubka).
- Fixed cTimers::GetNextActiveTimer() so that it won't return an expired timer
   (reported by Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Changed DVBS_TUNE_TIMEOUT and DVBC_TUNE_TIMEOUT to 9000ms to avoid problems with
   channels that have low symbol rates (reported by Suur Karu).
- Fixed displaying the current audio track in the channel display.
- When reading epg.data (or data from PUTE), the version number of events with
   table IDs smaller than 0x50 is now ignored because otherwise the current
   running status would not be set after a restart of VDR.
- Implemented a timeout for remote controls that don't deliver "repeat" keypresses
   very fast (based on a suggestion by Luca Olivetti; problem with the new handling
   of k_Repeat keypresses in channel switching reported by Udo Richter).
- When looking for the present or following EPG event, the running status is now
   always taken into account.
- Now initializing the channels' schedule pointers when reading the epg.data file,
   so that the first WhatsOn menu will come up faster.
- If a shutdown is requested, but the shutdown script doesn't actually halt the
   system, it is now tried again after 5 minutes (suggested by Helmut Auer).
- Separated the 'install' target into several individual targets; renamed the
   'plugins-install' target to 'install-plugins' (thanks to Helmut Auer).

Have fun!
