Since this is important for you personaly, you want to change VDR for all
users, are you serious?

>From my personal point of view a read only video directory with an video
disk recorder doesn't make much sense. But I wouldn't deny the need, because
obviously there a single user out there who does need it, strange enough ...

But to change it in a global way like this is IMHO not a way to go. The
correct solution would be that any user needing it, must decide and
configure something. So, a kind of a switch like an OSD option or even a
better way, VDR does check existence of a file in this video directory, e.g.
".vdrro", something similar to ".nodelete" ...

Kind regards
