And as the 1.2-version works great i have no real pressure for anything 
newer. (*)

The only exception is channel-scanning, but for that i have a 
1.4-version in a parallel-setup, that i can run for a bit of time when 
there are no recordings pending.

I will try a 1.6-version after a little time has passed, but it heavily 
depends on me having to update the Linux-install to a recent state or

That's not a case i'm very much interested in, at least as long as i 
don't know it is actually usable in my case. But even then, Murphy will 
prevent it from being useful 90% of the time it could have been useful. 
So it's still nothing i would count on.

Taking aside that i can't update my DVB-computers linux-installation to 
anything recent as the 1.2-version of VDR can't cope with a recent glibc 
(threading). But that's not a real problem as i don't use my 
DVB-computers for anything else. :-)

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as 
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, 
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
