It was a kind of a revelation to come upon VDR years ago, when I first 
met this great piece of software. It revealed that the change from 
analog to digital TV was not just for the worse, but in many ways for 
the better as well. So thank you Klaus for your great work (not 
forgetting others contributing) for letting as enjoy the best digital TV 
software there is. And bringing about a hobby that has consumed more 
hours than I care to count... And I don't mean the time spent watching TV :)
