Hello folks,

recently I re-adjusted my antenna to receive the BBC channels and
discovered that EPG is only available for the current and next event,
and then found out in the vdr-portal that there is the EEPG plugin which
decodes the extended EPG data they send (see

Well, wanting to quickly write a gentoo ebuild for it, I discovered that
the build fails because the author included libsi/si.c (not si.h) to
compile the plugin. While this might work when building plugins "by
hand" inside a vdr sources tree, or on a distribution where the sources
(not only headers) are available, I'm sure that's not good practice at
all. It's better to ask the maintainer of the respective library, class
or C file to export what's needed through the header.

Well, Klaus, would you please consider adding this patch to the next
release? Just exporting 2 functions and a flag, if you prefer you could
export the flag through a read-only access function, too.

Thank you,
