Upgraded VDR to version 1.6.0-2

I have recently upgraded my VDR setup with more recent software and plugin versions! My current setup consists of

  • FFmpeg revision 15245
  • DirectFB 1.0.1
  • Xinelib 1.1.15
  • VDR 1.6.0-2, with the following plugins
  • xineliboutput 1.0.1
  • epgsearch 0.9.24
  • remote 0.4.0
  • skinsoppalusikka 1.6.1
  • streamdev 0.3.4
  • sc 0.9.0

I’m using Matrox G550 and its tv-output to display the video image on my old 28″ analog television.

The actual reason for the upgrade was to get a recent FFmpeg version to play videos using xineliboutput’s media player. Everything went well except that for some reason, there’s a problem with the OSD when playing videos using software scaling (hardware scaling made OSD look awful). I posted a question about the problem on the VDR mailing list to see, if anyone else has had this problem. It seems to be some kind of initialization problem during playback, but I have not yet been able to find out the cause for it.

For those who don’t know what VDR is: It can be used to make a computer to function as a video disk recorder (article in Wikipedia).
