* Added Udo Richter's tsplay patch that allows VDR-1.6.0 to use TS recordings from VDR-1.7.x

The patch is commented out by default. The vdr-streamdev-cvs and vdr-xineliboutput-cvs plugins in AUR are compatible with the tsplay patch but vdr-streamdev will not build if the patch is applied!

(I really need to start a ChangeLog)
* Added a note to the install file to point out that the template runvdr script is no longer installed in /usr/bin
* Minor tweaks to the runvdr rc-script to make it consistent with the rc-script I use for vdradmin-am

I changed the PKGBUILD a few versions ago so that the template runvdr script that comes with the vdr source is no longer installed in /usr/bin (it's in /usr/share/doc/vdr if you want to edit it for use). A better alternative IMHO is to install vdr-extreme (also in AUR), which only needs a little configuring to work very well. (I guess that I ought to add a comment to the install file and perhaps some explanation to the VDR wiki page!)

error i'm getting after clean install:

$ sudo /etc/rc.d/runvdr start
which: no runvdr in (/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin/perlbin/site:/usr/bin/perlbin/vendor:/usr/bin/perlbin/core)
:: Starting runvdr as a daemon [DONE]

ps -A | grep vdr ... gives no results

Hopefully the last update for a while:
* Updated the rc.d script to more closely follow the current rc-script.proto and renamed it from vdr to runvdr

Another update:
* vdr-shutdown.sh now does some error checking and has optional debug logging

If you really want to run vdr as your user then you will need to change permissions on /var/spool/video and /var/spool/epg or, preferably, specify different directories when running vdr (see the vdr manual page for more information about vdr's command line switches).
I changed the PKGBUILD a couple of versions ago so that the template runvdr script that comes with the vdr source is no longer installed in /usr/bin (it's in /usr/share/doc/vdr if you want to edit it for use).

If I launch vdr simply typing vdr I obtain:
vdr: can't access video directory /var/spool/video
If I use the rc.d script I get:
/etc/rc.d/vdr: line 10: /usr/bin/runvdr: No such file or directory

Another update:
* vdr-shutdown.sh should now work if the hardware clock is set to local time and not UTC
