But there are plugins out there, that can add exactly what you need. One of them is "streamdev", which does a very good job.

Not anyone wants a client/server setup, so why should those people, not needing a networked setup, be forced to have all this stuff in their system, probably making things much slower.

Another point is, that the more code you add to the core codebase, the more time is needed to keep things running and fix bugs...

I like the OSD the way it is. It's one reason why I prefer VDR to other solutions. IMHO only a few changes are really needed in the OSD: Optional usage of true color for theme authors and a customizable main menu (Plain-Text configuration based on the class already used for commands.conf).

If I follow this discussion, then some people seem to not want to use VDR at all. If you don't like VDR, then maybe you want to have a look at other solutions. Maybe XBMC with its "tv-headend" or MythTV and if you want to use Windows, then please do so.

To get back to topic. IIRC Klaus suggested a fix for the bug discussed in this thread, before it got off topic. Did someone already start to create a fix based on Klaus's suggestion?
