How bad are the disruptions? There is one bug about picture disruptions that I know about and I am trying to track down, but it doesn't affect the picture all that much.

This dongle supports the new Hauppauge remote. You can select which remote you have in the options menu. If you change it to "New" but you have an old style remote your arrow keys will stop working, but you can get back to old style by pressing the 4 key off the main menu then press ok and then back to change the remote type.

Announcements / Fix for gazumping recordings
« on: August 03, 2005, 23:24:29 »
The latest CVS vompserver code now has a fix for the bug where it was possible to stop VDR from recording something by requesting Live TV with the MVP. At the moment there is no nice auto detection of the problem, the MVP will just freeze the picture or start showing a black screen. But, it should / will not stop VDR from recording something as before. (Not 100% guaranteeing that one, but it *should* work :) ) If you press stop on the MVP and wait a few seconds it will go back to the menu just fine.

Hello, this is definitely to do with VDR 1.3. I can only guess what is wrong here because I don't yet use VDR 1.3 myself, however.. I would guess that you are using a version earlier than VDR 1.3.27. I know that the code in that area of the mvpclient file is talking to parts of VDR that have changed in the 1.3 line, I guess the objects required by mvpclient don't exist in the VDR you use.

Hi, I like the idea but I have to say I am a bit clueless on how best to write multilingual programs. I suppose vomp won't be too bad because there aren't that many words. I hadn't really considered it too much yet since it is all so alpha at the moment. When I come up with a way of doing it then certainly you can do the translation :)


Mephisto, thanks for your comments, I'm glad you like it. As you've probably guessed I run VDR 1.2.6 and up until just recently vompserver wouldn't compile with VDR 1.3 at all. That was until Dave appeared and started making patches! Thanks Dave, and I have also applied the patch below to CVS on SF. So that should be that bug fixed when anonymous CVS on SF catches up.

Supporting the new remote is on the list, I just havn't got around to it yet ;) (I actually have both types of remote but was being careful to work to the old one first as it has less buttons.) And as for the TFTP server idea, I also found that out about a week ago that they have embedded it. It's definitely an interesting idea.

I'm very interested too in the deb package you made, I have yet to learn how to do all that. It would be very nice when I get to version 0.1 to have a deb available.

This dongle fixes a play-pause-stop-play then no sound bug. It makes it possible to put the MVP in standby even if the server is inaccessible. S-Video can now be set using on screen menus instead of editing the config file. Power state after initial bootup can be set to on, off, or last state.

This new dongle should support NTSC, and does support S-Video. If you have an NTSC TV please only try this if you know it won't blow up if it gets a PAL signal! I cannot test everything about the NTSC detection since I have an MVP that knows it's in a PAL zone. If you do try it please let me know your results!
This dongle can do S-Video. As there is no config menu yet in the GUI on the MVP, enable S-Video by editing the config file for the MVP on the VDR server. It will be in VDR_CONFIG_DIR/plugins and will be called vomp-IP_ADDRESS_OF_MVP.conf. Add the following text for S-Video:

S-Video = Yes

Please also update your vompserver plugin for a bug fix and VDR 1.3.27 support.

Announcements / Development Environment setup guide
« on: July 18, 2005, 01:42:43 »
I have had a go at writing a development environment setup guide that should show how to set up everything needed to cross compile code and have a MVP booting and mounting a NFS-root file system. It's at

It may be a bit buggy at first, comments welcome!

Hi, thanks for the positive review! The dongles I put on my web site are designed to be lean mean stripped down use-only versions of the program. I actually develop using exactly what you describe, a NFS root file system on the MVP. So, thanks for your post, this should give me exactly the push I needed to document/release my development environment. That would be, how to set up the cross compiler, how to build the client for dongle and non-dongle versions, how to build the kernel for the MVP for nfs-root and dongle and how to get all the server services working properly (DHCP/TFTP/NFS). It's been on the list for a while, but now there is someone actually wanting it I might get around to it! :)

Announcements / Dongle 0.0.3 posted
« on: July 11, 2005, 19:50:56 »
I have uploaded dongle version 0.0.3. This is compiled using later Hauppauge drivers - this will fix the MVP not releasing the TV on power down for some scart equipment. There is also a fix for the timezone issue - the MVP will now display the correct times.

The plugin needs to be updated and recompiled for this dongle to work.

Thanks! I'm glad you got it working so quickly. Very good to hear!

The standby function is supposed to do what you expected, it does for me! When you put it into standby what is on your screen?
And no, I didn't know that it doesn't compile under that version of VDR because every time I try the 1.3 line it has corrupt video so I have just left it. I will add that to the list - checking 1.3 again, and seeing why vompserver won't compile.

I have uploaded dongle-0.0.2 to the web site. I am hoping it will fix a lot of the audio/video sync problems.

I actually had some screenshots a while ago, but they are old and out of date now. I will make some new ones and post them.
