Yes it does. If I stay 15 seconds with bad picture and change to another
channel and back it works. I have to do that every time I restart vdr on
these channels. Is there a solution to this or do I have to buy new
hardware for VDR 1.6.0? I like VDR as it is now because I do not have
any HDTV channels or a LCD TV.
Why does it work in version 1.4.7?
