Announcing yaVDR 0.4 pre2 ISO Image

Avatar of hepihepi - 11. October 2011 - yaVDR

All the work that has been done on upcoming yaVDR 0.4 since our first test ISO pre1 back in July is now available bundled into a second test ISO called pre2. Testers are welcome to re-install and submit bugs to our bugtracker.


Please download the ISO yavdr64-0.4.0-pre2.iso from our download page.

What has changed since pre1?

  • Now ships with VDR developer version 1.7.21 (pre1 was shipping with 1.7.18)
  • New XBMC version (now based on pipelkas code) including a switch from vdr-plugin-vnsi to vdr-plugin-xvdr. In XBMC, the PVR addon necessary is now called xvdr. XBMC + PVR is still a huge construction site and for now we are switching to packages built from the code within the Git repositories of pipelka (being aware of the controverse opinions regarding vnsi/xvdr): github.com/pipelka/xbmc-addon-xvdr and github.com/pipelka/xbmc
  • Improved detection of necessary DVB drivers for DVB hardware present in system during installation.
  • More remote controls work out-of-the-box (thanks to eventlircd and the configuration files we provide) as soon as the USB receiver is connected to the HTPC (hotplug possible).
  • Incompatible change to pre1 regarding remote control setup in Web Frontend: eventlircd is now always enabled, LIRC may be enabled in addition if a remote control / receiver is used that belongs to the list of undetectable receiver devices (mainly receivers connected to the serial port)
  • Many updated packages

People updating from pre1 to pre2 via apt-get upgrade / dist-upgrade may experience some problems (XBMC, remote configuration). If you want to seriously help the yaVDR team, please install pre2 from scratch.

What about AAC LATM support?

I would like to know where yaVDR stands with the recent patches to xine-lib 1.2 adding support to aac latm?
