The Video Disk Recorder is a Linux program written by Klaus Schmidinger. It is used to receive digital TV and radio programs with a Personal Computer. If you wish you can record and play back those recordings at will.

Like any other hi-fi equipment, VDR can be controlled through remote control sets. The user interface is a menu displayed on the television (On Screen Display).

The software is released under the GPL. Everybody can download and use the source code freely. Also there exist many extensions in the form of Plugins and Patches, e.g. a DVD player or a MP3 player.
