thanks to Mirak for the packages. I have little problem. I have Ubuntu Server 9.04 with already installed VDR 1.6 from the Ubuntu repo. When I try to upgrade VDR from Mirak's repo, then it fails due unmet dependencies:
Does someone run in this as well?

B b b b but VDR 1.7.4 is required. I think you need to uninstall VDR 1.6 first, and then follow the guide on the first page.

I can try it, but I don't think that this is connected. It should be possible to just upgrade. The error is about unmet dependency and IMHO this will be still there after uninstalling the older version.

try using aptitude instead of apt-get to install the upgrade, it is better at resolving dependencies.

I tried aptitude and it doesn't help. Even when I removed the current version of VDR, then it doesn't help. I have also tried the force install, but without a success.
I have tried to install new instance of ubuntu server in VirtualBox and install the VDR server from Mirak's repo and it works. So something wrong on my server. I will try to reinstall the server at all. Thanks for your suggestions.

this is my first post, but i'm looking this forum for about 5 months.
I'm able to install on my new HTPC XBMC + VDR + VDPAU and i'm able to see LIVE TV from default XBMC skin, but i want to install my prefered skin: MEDIASTREAM.
I've install it, but i'm not able to see LIVE TV. I've read all about TV SHOW Library, but i'm interest to see Live TV from VDR plugin.
Can someone explain to me the correctly steps?

For now, the default skin (PM3.HD) is the only one that supports the PVR frontend.

Is anyone else experiencing crashing when pressing channel up or down in fullscreen TV mode? It happens for me only on a couple of channels (TV6 and 7 in NZ) .
I've debugged this but i couldn't get to the bottom of it.
Oddly, if I make the channel change through selecting the channel in the pop up channel select list it works fine.
