            VDR configuration
            After many trials, I succeeded in getting my skystar 2 card driver installed correctly. I installed VDR but I do not know how to configure it and run it. I did vdr but nothing happened. I saw the cursor hangs up till I did ctrl-c. Do I need to run another program with VDR to watch TV? How can I set my 4 way diseqc and from where I can get the sat data other than Astra?

            At least some patched versions of VDR 1.0.0pre5 have problems with Pro-7's AC3 APID. Nobody reported system reboots, though. Please subscribe to the VDR mailing list and describe your problem there. There are more people who can help you than here @fm.

            Another brainteaser
            Hi, seems like we get them all. *g*

            Well, today's problem is: VDR reboots on certain channels. Like
            Sat.1, Pro-7 and Kabel 1. All channels on which this happens
            are at frequency 12480. I do not get any error message, not
            even a GPF and it's not an EmerncyExit either..

            I seem to remember this to be some special band but
            can't remember which. Unfortunately our radio specialist left
            the company so I cant ask anyone else.

            Anyone got an idea whats going on?

            Thanks, Sabine

            Re: Bug: VDR hops channels after running for several hours
            here the answere from klaus (the writer of the programm):

            That's the EPG scanner starting after 5 hours of user inactivity.
            Set the Setup parameter "EPG scan timeout" to 0 to turn this off.
