Video Disk Recorder ('VDR') --------------------------- These files contain the source code of the "Video Disk Recorder", which is based on the DVB driver of the LinuxTV project (http://linuxtv.org). For details about the "Video Disk Recorder" project please refer to http://www.tvdr.de. There is also a remote control unit described on those Web pages, which can be used within this program. Please see the INSTALL file for details on how to install this program on your computer. The MANUAL file describes how to operate the VDR. The CONTRIBUTORS file lists all the people who have contributed to the development of VDR. The author can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yet another "set-top box"? -------------------------- The "set-top boxes" available from commercial companies all have one major drawback: they are not "open". This project's goal is to build an "open" digital satellite receiver and timer controlled video disk recorder, based upon open standards and freely available driver software (of course, the hardware still has to be bought). The on screen menu system is simple, but shall provide all the possibilities necessary to perform timer controlled recording, file management and even "on disk editing". The menus of commercial set-top boxes usually are a lot more fancy than the ones in this system, but here we have the full source code and can modify the menus in whatever way desired.
