30.000 downloads of yaVDR? We're nearly there!

Since the first version of yaVDR was released in January 2010, yaVDR ISO images were downloaded 28.549 times until the end of February 2011... Therefore we expect to hit the 30.000 download mark this March.

yaVDR ISO image downloads (January 2010 - February 2011)

Counting internet downloads is an error-prone and imprecise craft. But our vanity and our sanity tell us to care for those numbers, and we try to count in a conservative way. It's a source of motivation, and it's also reassuring that what we do is somehow useful, for us and for other people.

Announcing yaVDR-addon-pip (Picture in Picture)

The yaVDR-Team proudly presents the - as we believe - first OSD independent picture in picture (PiP) solution for the VDR. If you own more than one DVB card, you are now able to watch two arbitrary channels at the same time!

Watching Live TV on Android devices

It can't get much easier: Android app VPlayer allows VDR users to watch Live TV and recordings on a smartphone like the HTC Desire via WLAN. As the video streaming backend we use our own VDR box at home plus VDR plugin streamdev-server and VDR plugin Live (both are preinstalled on yaVDR).

New Addon for VDR available in yaVDR 0.3: Zeroconf-based mounting of NFS shares

With yaVDR 0.2 we introduced the automatic mounting of network shares through an autofs-based mechanism. Many users had problems with that and the development was discontinued. Since then we concentrated on finding a new and better solution.I guess we now have one. it's first available in yaVDR 0.3 but can also be used in any Debian-based VDR installation.

Updated ISO image of version 0.3.0 with bugfixes

A short notice: As some smaller bugs crept in at the last minute we decided to provide you with an updated ISO image called yavdr-0.3.0a.iso.

What has been fixed ?

  • The Nvidia display driver is now the right/expected version (260.12)
  • The driver package v4l-dvb-dkms now comes with two re-enabled patches related to mantis cards
  • OSD Menu translations should work now for other languages than German and English (also added an updated French translation)
  • The Italian version of the web interface should work now (no blue HTML screen any more)

Please note: if you are not affected by these errors there is no reason for redownload/re-install the ISO. These corrections will of course also be made available as package updates.

You can find the yavdr-0.3.0a.iso on the download page.

Announcing yaVDR 0.3

We are happy to announce the release of yaVDR 0.3. It's based on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx - just like yaVDR 0.2. But there are lot's of changes and new features "under the bonnet".

New features in upcoming yaVDR 0.3: Commands in yaVDR - switched to menuorg

As we are using menuorg as default and changes to menuorg do not require a vdr restart, plus we needed to rework that section anyway, we felt that the use of menuorg to define the Commands menu would be preferable. If you used drive your own commands there, you need to change them to a menuorg custom template.

"How to do that?" - you might ask.

New features in upcoming yaVDR 0.3: Userspace Software Suspend

Right from the start "suspend to RAM" was one of yaVDRs most beloved features giving our users the possibility to start their VDR within a few seconds. While this worked great for a lot of hardware, there were still some configurations where it didn't. That's why we decided to improve the situation by choosing a different method for yaVDR 0.3: "Userspace Software Suspend".
