Hi list,

Since VDR-1.7.x introduced the TS recording format, the VDR recordings 
world was split into PES and TS recordings. While VDR-1.7 can play both, 
all VDR-1.7 recordings cannot be played by 'stable' VDR-1.6 systems any 
more. In order to re-unite VDR-1.6 and VDR-1.7, I've back-ported parts 
of VDR-1.7 to 1.6 to allow playback of TS recordings even on VDR-1.6 

Facts in short:
- Plays back TS recordings in SD resolution
- HD recordings may work depending on output plugin
- Can edit TS recordings
- Records to old PES format, fully compatible to VDR-1.6.0
- No recording to TS possible, sorry.
- Supports >4GB and >255 files for TS recordings
- No frame rate support, assumes 25fps
- Implements TS device interface for output plugins
- Working TS to PES repacker
- Hybrid index file support. No conversion to/from old format as VDR-1.7 

For convenience, there's a compatible version of the hard link cutter 
patch and the jumpplay patch available. Since the impact of the patch is 
quite big, other patches might break too.
