Friday at last.
Upgraded my machine last night. Or well, "upgraded" is probably a bit extreme. I replaced utterly obsolete hardware with less obsolete stuff. My G200 made way for a Geforce 2 and I finally added a sound card, a Live. Both work fine and the Linux installation took 5 minutes, excluding a boot to see that everything still worked. Haven't tested the 3D capabilities yet, but they are at least better than what the G200 did in software. :)
Been doing some work on the image viewer plugin to Video Disk Recorder. Seems to progress well, but there are a few things I don't understand. The mailing list and #LinuxDVB @efnet are good sources of help, as are the numerous other old plugins.
